    Windows onto Identity

    Triptychs painted to look like flags draw your attention on various floors. In these triptychs, our ‘windows onto identity’, we consider events during and just after the war from various perspectives, allowing visitors to form their own opinions. All the windows have one feature in common: they take a deeper look at the issue of national identity.

    These windows onto identity are the factor that connects the story of the First World War to the history of the site.
