East Grinstead Museum

The town that did not stare

This project is using the Queen Victoria Hospital collections, where facial reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation for burned WWII pilots, who became known as Guinea Pig club was pioneered, as basis for testing past and present attitudes of local people to disfigurement.

 

Further details on the progress of this project coming soon.
