The ‘Europeana 1914-1918’ project aims to collect material that relates to the Great War (1914-1918) and those involved in or affected by it. In the current phase we are collecting material and stories from Britain, Germany, Slovenia, Luxembourg, Ireland, etc. More information about the project and the kind of material we are collecting can be found on the About page.
Adding your story to Europeana 1914-1918
You can add your story to Europeana 1914-1918 by using the online collection form on this website. You simply type in some information about your contribution, saying what it is (a postcard sent from XX, a diary, etc) and add any story that you want to share (for example about the person in the photograph, how you got it, what you know about the object). You can then attach a digital version of the object, for example a scanned or photographed copy of the picture, diary, uniform or whatever it is you are sharing. Once your contribution has been submitted it will be reviewed by an expert and become available for others.
