This exhibition returns to Newarke Houses after a short run at the museum last summer.

It commemorates Leicester’s “Blitz Night” when 108 people were killed by German bombers. Leicester was bombed several times in 1940 and 1941 but the raid on the night of 19-20 November 1940 was by far the worst.

The exhibition shows how Leicester prepared for air raids and covers all the German attacks. It also shows how people acted on those nights, often in the words of those who were there.

Accompanying their stories are many photographs and paintings of the damage done.
