This exhibition studies the history of the Great War through the eyes and voices of the men who experienced war - from near or from far, on the front lines or in the rear, from the eve of the conflict to its aftermath, or indeed when the experience of war was continued in books and literature.
The exhibition touches on the stories and works of great French, German and British authors including Blaise Cendrars, Ernst Jünger, Guillaume Apollinaire, Wilfried Owen, Joë Bousquet, Georg Trakl, Pierre Mac Orlan and Jacques Vaché. The exhibition, which is displayed in the chronological, thematic and polyphonic order of one of the most deadly wars in history, immerses visitors in the history and mindset of these men who embarked on the great tragedy of war.
Exhibition curators: Laurence Campa and Philippe Pigeard
