Saturday 12th July 2014 : Brighton Museum : 'War Stories: Voices from the First World War' .
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery
Free admission
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, this exhibition brings to life the wartime experiences of 13 individuals whose intensely personal memories and extraordinary stories reveal the impact of war.
The diverse voices of individuals reveal both familiar and surprising stories of a war that profoundly changed British society. See the war through the eyes of a young girl born in 1914, an Indian soldier wounded on the Western Front and taken to hospital in the Royal Pavilion, soldiers from Brighton, including a Brighton & Hove Albion footballer, nurses and a gardener who was imprisoned for his pacifist beliefs.
Personal letters, diaries, art, photography, costume, film and memorabilia evoke the love, excitement, fear, bravery, grief, loss and longing that touched the lives of millions of people.
Reflections on our personal and collective acts of remembrance and commemoration explore the continuing impact of war on our lives.

Co financed by the European Regional Development Fund and made possible by INTERREG IV A 2Seas programme.
