Museum of Contemporary History Puts Up WWI Exhibition



The exhibition was termed "We Haven't Imagined Such War", which its curator Marko Štepec said was borrowed from Slovenian author Ivan Matičič, who fought as an Austrian solider and wrote this phrase.

The stories of people in the multi-ethnic Austro-Hungarian Monarchy are composed of fragments from museums or family collections.

The experience of Austro-Hungarian soldiers in Galicia will be presented through a collection of items and photos of officer Stanko Oražem, taken by an unknown photographer.

Another story is that of Alice Shalek, the most well-known Vienna war correspondent, who wrote a book about battles in the Posočje region in present-day Slovenia.

In a room dedicated to memory a number of photos of memorials to whose killed in WWI will be put on show.

The exhibition, which will run until 15 May, will also focus on several vital events which affected the lives of the people in the monarchy.
