Place de la Liberté de Pensée, Strasbourg, France


6 November 2023 - 15 December 2023


We invite you to visit our outdoor exhibition “After The Great War”, on its 25th stop, now in Strasbourg! You’ll find the display at the Place de la Liberté de Pensée, Presqu'Ile Malraux. Over 200 archive and multimedia materials – pictures, maps, and films – together with individual stories of those who lived then, present a complex yet coherent picture of a New Europe. The main goal of the travelling display is to illustrate the scale of the political changes and their impact on current politics as well as to reveal different national memories. The exhibition aims to present well-documented facts in an original and refreshing way by highlighting their mutual connections and weaving them into one narrative, considering multiple perspectives. Learn about the changes the First World War (1914–1918) brought to Europe. How did the continent change? What superpowers were ruined and made way for new independent states? What was the everyday life of Europeans like in the post-war years Could the events of a century ago have parallels with the current global situation?
