          Het vijfde jaar van basisschool 'De Eenhoorn' had het ambitieuze plan opgevat om, in het kader van een ruimer WOI-project, de moord op prins Ferdinand en zijn vrouw in Sarajevo 1914 te verfilmen. We kozen ervoor om de film een retro-look te geven, alsof de film gemaakt is in 1914, dus in zwart-wit, zonder klank, met pancartes, in een 4:3 beeldverhouding en inclusief krassen op de pellicule. Honderden mede-leerlingen, uitgedost in de klederdracht van toen, figureerden mee. Het fraaie resultaat was te zien op de WOI-musical van de school.

                • Eating nose to tail meant more meat for Europe in WWI

                  Eating nose to tail was more patriotic than trendy during World War I. Because of the dramatic food shortages in Europe, Americans were encouraged to eat "alternate" meats (something other than beef) and all parts of the animal. One way to reduce beef consumption, according to the authors of "Win the War in the Kitchen," was "by utilizing all cuts and organs of the animal to the best advantage." It was considered a step backward for comfortable Americans to eat animal offal which had come to be seen as poor people's food. However, the cookbooks written for use during the war included recipes for sweetbreads, kidneys and the tongue featured in the video above. The braised tongue in this video is accompanied by what was called a Mandalay salad, indicating an awareness of what at the time was called "foreign food." Historian and chef Amanda Moniz prepares the foods while historians Helen Veit from Michigan State University, the author of “Modern Food, Moral Food,” a book about American eating habits in the early 20th century, and Julia Irwin from the University of South Florida, author of “Making the World Safe,” about the country’s humanitarian awakening, put the recipes into context for the time. The filming was done at Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital in Washington, D.C. Construction of the Old Naval Hospital began in 1864 in response to the critical need for hospital care during the Civil War, but the building was not completed until 1866, after the war was over. During World War I, it was used for medical exams for recruits.
