Shelby Redman's curator insight, December 2, 2013 2:14 PM

This is quite an interesting piece. It is evidence that the effects of war last decades! This would be a great tool to open up discussion about lasting effects of war and world war I. I would reccommend that teachers use this to tie up their unit of World War I or even at the end of the year to show that the 20th century had effects on the 21st century. This would be great for homework reading or small group discussion brought together by a larger group discussion.
