Event Description:
Thursday, November 1st to Friday, November 30th, 2018

Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, Second Floor Art Gallery

"San Jose and World War One: A Centennial Exhibition"

Posters, maps and artifacts explain and commemorate the First World War, focusing on its impact on San Jose and the surrounding area. Although Santa Clara County was far from the battlegrounds of Europe, the war affected virtually everyone living here. While thousands joined the military and thousands more died, an anti-war movement also existed. The war spawned music, poetry, prose and film, and it changed American life forever. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
