Museum of the Great War

In the heart of the World War I Somme battlefields stands Château de Péronne, a castle that now houses the Museum of the Great War, often called Historial. The exhibitions solely focus on World War I, its origins, repercussions and conclusions, from the early years to the deadly finale, placing war in a social context and stressing the common suffering of the combatants. It also presents the war from a civilian standpoint, which were equally mobilized by the war effort in this affected region. The museum features two permanent exhibits; the first one, “Prisoners of War”, deals with all aspects of captivity and presents the harsh reality of 500,000 French, 160,000 British and 85,000 Germans prisoners of war. The second exhibit, “Children in World War I”, highlights the way children were subject to and of propaganda, how schoolbooks dwelled on patriotic duty to inspire future soldiers and nurses, for example.
