Ethnic minorities

  1. Since the mid-18th century we have seen the arrival of people from different nationalities and ethnic groups, which has contributed to the cultural diversity of our city.

  2. What's available

    We have collated various sources of information to give a brief overview of ethnic history and migration to the city. This includes materials on:

    • various ethnicities
    • general sources
    • slavery
    • race relations

  3. Related information

    We also hold the Bataillard gypsy collection.

  4. Next steps

    If you can offer material that can be added to the collection, please email:
