PACKING UP THE NATION - Caroline Shenton

Monday 17 August, 2020

As Hitler’s forces gathered on the other side of the Channel to threaten the UK, men and women from London’s national museums, galleries and archives forged extraordinary plans to evacuate their collections to safety.

It was the sweltering summer of 1939.
