This is series of posts explores the Rosenbach’s newest initiative, Families Affected by Wartime. This ground-breaking initiative will serve the military community, a population largely ignored by museums. The Rosenbach houses an exceptional collection of wartime letters and documents which speak to the personal experience of war and the challenges faced by service men and women and their families. The project aims to connect families from the past with those from the present, demonstrating the relevance of historical documents to our contemporary wartime experience.
Over the next few months, project advisers, as well as Rosenbach staff and trustees, will be sharing their experiences with the Families Affected by Wartime project here on the Rosenblog.
