Living under occupation.

As France celebrates the first centenary of the end of World War I, Lille commemorates its own victims, with a free exhibition in the highly symbolic location of the Town Hall.
Lille was occupied as early as 13 October 1914; the city became a parenthesis, cut off from French territory until the end of the conflict in October 2018. The archives unveiled during this exhibition illustrate the distinctive everyday life of civilians, very different from the reality of soldiers in the trenches.

From Wednesday 12 September to Sunday 11 November 2018 :
- From Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 17:00
- Saturday from 08:00 to 12:00

Admission prices :
