A l’Est, la guerre sans fin [In the East, an endless war] is the upcoming exhibition that Paris Musée de l’Armée will dedicate to the 1918-1923 period, a period of time said to be “roaring” but where conflicts keep happening in the East and the Middle-East, a part of History we don’t know very well!
The “A l’Est, la guerre sans fin” exhibition returns on the fall of the Empires of the eastern Europe made of revolutions, civil wars, important alterations of the borders and creation of new States thanks to 270 works, items and documents.
While conflicts cease in western Europe on November 11, 1918, the war still roars in the East and Middle-East until 1923: France struggles but tries to bring back stability in the region, but the various treaties are very quickly contested. For instance, the Treaty of Sèvres signed on August 10, 1920, between the Turkey and the Allies is rearranged and altered in depth less than three years later with the Treaty of Lausanne, signed on July 24, 1923.
Because of it, eastern Europe is shaken by violence and instability of which the consequences are still visible today and required to be explained a century after the First World War ends.
