On the nights of 13 and 14 March 1941, German bombers targeted shipyards and the munitions factories of Clydebank, Dunbartonshire.
This devastating attack by German bombers saw the worst destruction and civilian loss of life in all of Scotland during the Second World War. 528 people lost their lives and over 4,000 homes were left in ruin, dramatically changing the urban landscape of Clydebank forever.
Pupils in one of Clydebank's local schools, St Stephen's Primary School, have been working with the Scotland's Urban Past (SUP) team to learn more about the Clydebank Blitz and investigate the changes to their local area since the bombings in March 1941.
After visiting the community-curated Blitz Remembered exhibition at the Clydebank Heritage Centre, the pupils learned how to interpret historical maps and gained hands-on training in photography to document Clydebank as it is today.
The commemorative exhibition, archival maps and present-day photographs provided inspiration for a series of intergenerational ceramics workshops which were led by artist Cheryl Ewing and came about thanks to a connection made at a local Generations Working Together meeting.
Primary 7 pupils from St Stephen's Primary School and residents from Dalmuir Park Housing Association worked together to produce ceramic artworks that will be publicly displayed in Clydebank.
