Tracing the Belgian refugees

Startscreen "Tracing the Belgian refugees"

The website of the project Tracing the Belgian refugees has been created by the University of Leeds in partnership with the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and University College London. The project aims at creating a database concerning Belgian refugees who came during the First World War to the United Kingdom. Anyone can contribute information about refugees and their lives in exile. The database is supported by a blog, and there are also scholarly events on the research concerning the Belgian refugees. The database has four main fields: name, UK address, date of arrival and date of departure. You can use a general search field or add a new record to the database. The website can only be viewed in English.

The project is associated with the Online Centre for Research on Belgian Refugees.
