Open March 6 - April 30, 2017
This traveling exhibition created by the Belgian National Institute for Veterans and Victims of War will tour during the centennial of United States entry into the Great War. The Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has selected Atlanta as the only Southeastern venue to host the exhibition that honors the human sacrifice of more than 116,000 U.S. military in the “war to end all wars.”
The Great War in Broad Outlines is endorsed by the United States World War I Centennial Commission. Told in more than 30 panels, the exhibition chronicles many events including the efforts of Herbert Hoover, as head of the U.S. Food Administration, in providing humanitarian relief to those starving in wartime Belgium.
