Legacies of World War I Author Lecture Wednesday, December 17, Noon-1pm Learning Center, 3rd floor, National Archives at New York City One Bowling Green, New York

December 15, 2014

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, Martin Levinson, a member of the National Book Critics Circle, World War I Historical Association and Authors Guild, provides an informative lecture about the war. Its legacy is more present than we may think. The volatile politics of Middle East and Balkan Europe stem directly from World War I and its immediate aftereffects. America’s current preoccupation to champion democracy throughout the world is also a product of the first world war. Space is limited. Please RSVP: newyork.archives@nara.gov
