After a successful Member Preview, the Museum and Memorial's newest exhibition Captured – telling the story of prisoners of war in WWI – is opening today to the general public.

During four brutal years of the Great War, nearly 9 million people were held as prisoners of war at some point during the conflict. From the shores of Southeast Asia and the Siberian tundra, to mere miles from the Western Front, they were imprisoned the world over – by both sides. Seldom told, their experiences are some of the most common during the Great War.

The exhibition closes April 30, 2023.
