Hayyan Bhabha introduces a project that is using newly-discovered documents to show the contribution of Allied Muslim soldiers in the First World War, with the aim of developing empathy, mutual respect and religious understanding in young children of all ages.

At a time of rising nationalism across the world, where Muslims are increasingly viewed with suspicion, The Unknown Fallen provides an invaluable classroom resource to help young children learn about diversity in the First World War through learning about the contribution of Muslim soldiers and labourers who participated
in a war that was not of their making.
