Life and Death in Exile
On Tuesday 19 June, as part of Refugee Week 2007, a ‘day of exploration’ was held at Kensal Green Cemetery, to look at issues relating to life and death in exile. A range of people gathered to listen to a fascinating range of presentations in the Dissenters Chapel. After lunch, they went on a guided tour, visiting the graves of different people born abroad and going into the catacombs.
Read an account of the different talks, view pictures from the day and find out about some of the people born abroad and buried at Kensal Green Cemetry.
Immigration is an issue that affects every one of us and is often in the
news. Ruth Wilson's book helps young people to understand immigration,
the reasons behind it and its effects on our global community.
