National World War I Museum Presents Man & Machine The German Soldier

. January 3, 2011 . 0 Comments

This special exhibition draws on the extensive collections of the Museum, including the recent Hauber donation of machine guns and related material.

The exhibition will be told from the perspective of the German soldier and his leaders, featuring the machines of war and the men who used them. Most of the objects and documents will be on exhibit for the first time. The exhibition will run through 2011. The exhibition will be housed in Exhibit Hall, one of the two original 1926 buildings which flank the Liberty Memorial Tower. Access to the special exhibition is included with admission to the National World War I Museum.

“This is a truly unique exhibition for this country. It explores this pivotal world event from a total new perspective,” says President & CEO Brian Alexander. “Not only are you seeing the Great War through the eyes of those who fought against America and its Allies, you are seeing how machines transformed the war. When you look at this material you wonder who is in control…the man or the machine.”

The National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial inspires thought, dialogue, and learning to make the experiences of the World War I era meaningful and relevant for present and future generations.
