Historical Association Bolton Branch Lecture – Charlotte Czyzyk: ‘Voices From the Armistice’
On 11 November 1918, an armistice between Britain, her allies and Germany came into effect. For many, this was met with relief and a sense of joy and release. But in the longer term, the aftermath of the war was more complicated. This talk will share personal stories of men and women who experienced the Armistice in 1918, from those who served overseas to civilians on the home front. These stories are amongst millions which are being remembered on Lives of the First World War, IWM’s permanent digital memorial.
