Centenary Exhibition: War on the Home Front
To mark the centenary of the First World War, Alexandra Palace’s ‘War on the Home Front’ exhibition tells the little known story of the Palace’s role 100 years ago.
Between 1914 & 1918 Alexandra Palace was first home to thousands of Belgians fleeing the German invasion before becoming an internment camp for non- naturalised German, Austrian and Hungarian men who were considered a danger to the UK’s war effort.
The exhibition uncovers the personal stories and experiences of those imprisoned at the camp and the dramatic change in local attitudes to how the Palace was being used.
