Tracing the Belgian Refugees is a digital humanities project funded by the AHRC and run by colleagues at the Universities of Leeds, Leuven and UCL, which traces and records Belgian refugees who came to the UK during the First World War. We have created a free-to-use online database for anyone who would like to input information that they have found about a Belgian refugee, and to view the information that others have shared. With this, we hope to widen our knowledge and understanding of the experiences and legacies of the Belgian refugee diaspora. Read moreVisit the database
