Children & World War I @Getty Images

World War I suddenly changes the whole world. Not only soldiers become victims of an escalated conflict. Millions of women and children stay behind, alone at home, or join one of the many groups of refugees. For the first time children also found themselves in the eye of the storm. 

The exhibition War in short pants in Ghent shows the events of World War I through the eyes of children of that time like Elfriede, Yves and George.There are also several museums in Flanders Fields that tell the story of World War I adapted to children.
