Seven Men, One Leg

The reintegration of soldiers after World War I

During World War I, even when the battles were over, for many soldiers the fighting continued, as they had to overcome the physical and mental consequences of their service. It was often difficult to recuperate and find their place in society again, economically as well as socially.

In this exhibition, we take a closer look at different aspects of the process of reintegration by highlighting some international examples, based on newspaper articles, illustrated with photographs and stories from various sources.
