Making History: documenting coronavirus in the East End.

Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives wants to create a lasting collective memory of our community’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. As an archive it is our responsibility to not only preserve historic records from the past, but collect and preserve the history of today to inform many generations to come.

What is life like for you during lockdown? How are you dealing with the situation? How are you passing your days? Many will now be working or studying from home – how have these changes to regular routines affected you? What was Ramadan like for you this year? Key workers, how has your role changed? Are there positives to take away from this crisis?


By collecting records of your experiences we can create an archive that will help future generations understand our lives and the environment we are currently living in and help them meet challenges they may face.
