Untold Sacrifices: The St. Louis Jewish Community in the Great War

This exhibition honors those in the St. Louis Jewish community who served abroad, for both the Allies and the Central Powers, and on the home front during WWI. Whether they fought in the Western Front trenches or in Palestine, helped raise funds through the United War Work Campaign or were part of the medical corps, they all played a role in the “War to End All Wars.” Please join us to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Great War.
