1917

In 1917, the United States entered World War One, joining France and its allies, and fundamentally shifting the balance of the conflict. 1917 would also prove to be a pivotal year in art and culture due, in large part, to an extraordinary exchange of ideas between Europe and America. From jazz to avant-garde art, silent film and modern literature, it was a time of almost unprecedented change and innovation on both sides of the Atlantic. One hundred years after, the French Embassy in the United States sheds light on this momentous occasion through an artistic commemoration of the sacrifice made by the American as well as a celebration of the enduring bond between the United States and France. On Tuesday, September 12, 2017, the French Embassy will present a unique event featuring two live musical performances by the United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own”, a film screening and a photography exhibition.

Vive L'Amérique: French School Children Welcome Their American Ally

When the Great War started in the summer of 1914, a school teacher in the Montmartre district of Paris asked his students, boys ages 8-13, to write essays and express in drawings how the war would affect their daily lives.

The children produced hundreds of drawings and essays reflecting on the changing nature of the war, political leaders, letters to their relatives on the front line, and daily food rationing. Despite these changes, the students still went to class, did their homework, and continued their lives as normally as possible.
