Travelling Exhibition - ‘The Great War in Broad Outlines’


expo_14-18

 

In April 2017, the United States will commemorate the centenary of its engagement in WWI, and the sacrifice of American troops, notably on Belgian soil, during this awful global conflict. ‘The Great War in Broad Outlines’, a travelling exhibition presented by the Embassy of Belgium in the United States, tells the story of the Great War on the international, Belgian and local levels. Created by the National Institute for Veterans and Victims of War for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and endorsed by the United States WWI Centennial Commission, ‘The Great War in Broad Outlines’ will be shown in Miami, Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Washington DC.

A view on the many faces of the Great War, ‘The Great War in Broad Outlines’ presents key moments and battles of WWI; how the American engagement changed the course of the war; occupied Belgium and The Commission for Relief in Belgium (American humanitarian response to the plight of civilians); technological and medical progress during the Great War; and also sheds light on a number of lesser known episodes and aspects of WWI (resistance, Belgians in Russia, animals in the war…).

The Embassy of Belgium would like to thank all the exhibition partners of ‘The Great War in Broad Outlines’, notably UPS.
