      The Digital War Memorial is a project led by the Society of Chief librarians. It brings together a wide range of communities to work with high quality artists to create their own unique creative response to the First World War Centenary. Using the rich resources of local libraries and archives as the starting point, the new artworks tell diverse stories of how the First World War touched people’s lives and how it is remembered today. From 2014 to 2018 we hope to see projects across the whole country that will cumulate into a truly national memorial for our times. http://digitalwarmemorial.com

                    An insight into the work of Ludwig Meidner and in particular “Apocalyptic Vision” part of a series of paintings he produced in his Berlin studio during the summer of 1912. These paintings of burning cities and fleeing people, coming just before the outbreak of the First World War seemed to be an uncanny prediction of what was to come.
