The exhibition also tells the stories of some of the families who were left behind: their accounts of their own experiences bring home the huge human cost
of the war and tell us something about life in Ireland between 1914 and 1918.

Although the exhibition has broad appeal, it is of particular interest to second-level students and has been specially written with them in mind.

The exhibition explores themes covered by the curriculum in:
Leaving Certificate History
Junior Certificate English
Leaving Certificate English

Supplementary learning activities and resources have also been compiled for 5th and 6th class students of SPHE.
