For this project, the museum is looking for photos of soldiers who took part in the Battles of Arras in WW1.

The photos will be displayed in the whole town of Arras in big formats so that the inhabitants, local people or visitors can cross the faces of the men who lived in the town for 3 years.

This project will also be divided into 3 levels:

  1. Finding the photos of the soldiers
  2. Finding the stories of these soldiers (life, letters, archives…)
  3. Finding the descendants of these men to attend the dawn Service in  Arras on April 9th 2017

If you have photos, ideas or links which can help us or if you are a descendant please contact us:
