Goodbye to all that? Legacies of the First World War

What happened after the guns fell silent on the Western Front? One hundred years after the Armistice on 11 November 1918, this exhibition explores the legacies of the First World War.

Learn about the stories of the children, women and men who experienced the conflict and the lasting impact on their lives.

The exhibition tells the stories of people of Yorkshire, and beyond, getting used to life after the "War to End All Wars". With themes of grief, memory, disability, women’s rights and politics, the stories still resonate today.

The display is co-curated by University of Leeds PhD students Eilis Boyle and Alexander Shaw, and Professor Alison Fell.

The exhibition displays items from the University of Leeds Special Collections. Items include objects from the Liddle Collection of material from the two World Wars.
