Remembering War: WW100

Over 35,000 Welsh men and women lost their lives in the First World War. Wales’ Temple of Peace was built as Wales’ national memorial to commemorate the loss of a generation in the Great War, and to house the WW1 Book of Remembrance – the rollcall of names. Over the WW100 Centenary period 2014-2018, the Book was digitised and ‘soldiers stories’ gathered as part of WCIA’s Wales for Peace project – which went on to explore how the horrors of war led a generation in Wales to campaign for peace and work for more positive international relations.
