EVENT NAME

1914: When the World Changed Forever

DESCRIPTION
The terror of total war and its revolutionary impact on life around the world will be explored in this major new exhibition marking the centenary of the First World War. From the pre-war golden age of peace and prosperity visitors will be sent to the recruitment office and travel via train to the horrors of the frontline - from rats to foot rot, shell shock to gas warfare. Back home, daily life in Britain was changing beyond recognition while around the world millions would die as Europe's empires clashed in the first truly global conflict. New technology and research will be combined with the museum’s extensive military, costume and social history collections to tell the fascinating and often moving stories of the Yorkshire people who lived and died during the war that they said would end all wars. The exhibition is the central part of a £1.7 million project at the museum, with the majority of the funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). It is planned to open on June 28 – 100 years to the day that Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, which then sparked a chain of events which led to the outbreak of war.
