I set up this website about two years ago, as a way of raising the profile of the subject of Switzerland during the First World War, publicising the information that I had on this topic, and encouraging others to share information they have. This has gone really well. See the blog posts on this site with information supplied by other people, such as on a painting made by British former prisoners of war interned in Switzerland, a series of photographs of German interned former prisoners of war, and on the Swiss national donation medal. But there was very little easily available information out there (in English at least) on Switzerland and the First World War. With the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of that conflict, this has changed and below I look at some of the interesting stories on the web.
The blog will feature interesting images, objects or information relating to Switzerland and the First World War. If you have something interesting that you think could be featured here, I would be glad to hear from you! Thanks.
