National History Museum exhibition dedicated to 100th anniversary of launch of First World War


Belarus in the First World War explores this period of history across six thematic sections: pre-war Belarus; military operations on the territory of our country; refugees; household items owned by soldiers; weapons and uniforms, clothes and medical supplies; and photos and documents. Many of the exhibits were found locally by archaeologists on battle sites.

Oleg Ryzhkov, who heads the National History Museum, tells us, “The project shows many aspects, with items on loan from private collectors across the globe; their help has enabled us to extend the collection of exhibits.” Belarus in the First World War is set to be on show for several years, touring the nation’s largest cities.

The exhibition has been organised with help from the National Historical Archives of Belarus, Smorgon’s Folk Museum of Local History, Grodno’s State Museum of Religious History, Zaslavl Historical and Cultural Museum-Reserve, the State Museum of Belarusian Literary History, the Yanka Kupala State Literary Museum, the Yakub Kolas State Literary-Memorial Museum, the Republican Scientific Medical Library, Beltelekom historical-information centre, and the specialised search unit of the Ministry of Defence.
