From Sanctuary to Salvage

To commemorate the ‘Baedeker Raid’ today – Friday, the 29th April – Raids Over York has been working with University of York student, Eleanor Richardson, to produce three, short YouTube videos about the raid.

Eleanor has been with the Archives Team at York Explore Libraries & Archive as part of an IPUP placement, working through their collection.

Her third and final video focuses on the important role the city’s 20 Rest Centres played during the raid, and the scale and impact of the emergency billeting of the thousands of people who had lost their home in the bombing.
