100 Years First World War // Virtual exhibition

Items depicting everyday life and the media of the First World War are being featured in the new online "100 Years First World War" exhibition. Including posters and war newspapers, more than 200 media objects illustrate the importance of mass media in relation to the War. Areas covered by the exhibition include propaganda and censorship. For instance, visitors can find out all about the role of children's and young people's literature in the propaganda machinery of the First World War.

While ration cards and posters bear witness to the difficulties of day-to-day life in which simply finding enough to eat was a problem. The content can be accessed via the different theme areas, but there is also a time line which provides an overview of the sequence of events in the War. There is also a glossary explaining relevant terms.
