The First World War is widely remembered as a war of position and trench warfare. At the same time this conflict also involved a lot of movement. Soldiers travelled to and from the frontlines, and as a result civilians were also displaced. Soldiers from all over the British Empire arrived in Europe to fight, while Chinese workers left Asia for Europe. Finally, after the war, there was even more movement as families or veterans travelled to the former battlefields, cemeteries and memorials to mourn their lost ones.
This virtual exhibition was developed in the frame of the Cross-border project Interreg IVA "The Great War remembered". It follows the cycle of exhibitions “Four ways to the Great War”. The In Flanders Fields Museum, the Musée départemental de Flandre, the Historial de la Grande Guerre, the Caverne du Dragon-Musée du Chemin des Dames and the Departments of Pas-de-Calais and Nord joined forces for this exhibition. Today they invite you to discover it!
