Welcome to Gathering The Voices
The Gathering The Voices project has gathered and made available online oral testimony from men and women who sought sanctuary in Scotland to escape the racism of Nazi-dominated Europe.
Many made remarkable journeys to get to safety in Scotland. There is much for you to see and hear on this site.
Listen to the voices of the survivors – their accents will tell you a lot about their journeys. There are Scottish accents, continental lilts and sometimes a mixture of both.
All the interviewees spoke about the terrible events that brought them to Scotland.
