They grow not old, as we that are left grow old: The 90th Anniversary of the November 11, 1918 Armistice

November 5, 2008 - November 16, 2008

AWE Gallery

November 11, 2008 marks the 90th anniversary of the conclusion of World War I. On November 11, 1918, an armistice was signed in a railway carriage in Compiègne, France. The Great War, as it was then called, was a catastrophic conflagration of stalemate which profoundly moulded the remainder of the twentieth century. WWI was intrumental in the transformation of social morals, politics, warfare, and of civilization itself. During and because of this conflict, Canada attained a self-identity and nationhood became a reality.

This display is a tribute to all who served in the military and were engaged in this conflict, a poignant memorial to those who were injured or killed. To commemorate the conclusion of this war, a selection of paintings, graphics, photos and books will be displayed to narrate the events of the conflict.
