*This is a virtual event*
On 30 January 1972, thirteen unarmed civilians were shot dead in Derry as British paratroopers opened fire on a banned civil rights march. A fourteenth victim also died some months later as a result of injuries sustained in what came to be known as ‘Bloody Sunday.’ To mark the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, personal artefacts on loan from the families affected will be displayed at the Ulster Museum.
On 3rd February at 7pm relatives will take part in a facilitated online discussion with Curators from the Ulster Museum about the anniversary, and their contribution to this display and the exhibition at the Museum of Free Derry. The evening will be introduced by a short film (tbc) of some of the relatives speaking about the objects relating to their family members at the Museum of Free Derry.
