Belgian Refugees in Rhyl

The Belgian Refugees in Rhyl

  • 3 August — 30 December 2014 *on now

In September 1914 a quarter of a million Belgian refugees poured in through Britain’s ports having escaped the advancing German Army. This was, and still is, the largest refugee movement in British History and is largely forgotten.

The British Government accepted the responsibility for the reception, maintenance and registration of these refugees, whilst at the same time they sought out assistance in housing the refugees with local authorities.

This exhibition tells the stories of some of the refugees from Aarschot. Rhyl welcomed the refugees in October 1914.
