This exhibit focuses on 1918, the final year of World War I. With American troops joining the Allied forces along the Western Front, Germany sees failure and catastrophic losses that lead to the nervous breakdown of its top general and the collapse of an empire. With global travel the new norm, an influenza pandemic breaks out, killing millions with its devastation.
Meanwhile, Russia undergoes a radical transformation, the staggering geographic changes resulting from war itself become evident, and at last, armistice and hope for a peaceful future are visible along the horizon.
