Harlow is 75: Out of South Africa: Interview with Karin Lehmann
Harlow is 75: A Celebration of Global Harlow / Tue 13th Sep 2022 am30 06:09am
TODAY, our global tour takes us to South Africa. We met Karin Lehmann at the opening of the refurbished Harlow library.
We were taken with her enthusiasm regarding education and we were also taken by her enthusiasm in telling us what it was like, growing up in South Africa.
To mark the town’s 75thanniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.
The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”.
