During the Great War, nurses played a key role in the care brought to wounded soldiers. Some volunteered to help and others were paid workers, there were nuns as well as secular staff, and not all of them were trained: however, all of them showed deep devotion to the care of the wounded as well as they mastered new skills.
Their white silhouette is one of the symbols of the Great War, and yet, very few nurses talked about the ordeal and difficulties they went through. The exhibition explores how the war shook up the nursing profession, and tells some of their poignant stories.
This exhibition has received the label “Exposition of national interest” awarded by the Ministry of Culture.
