India in the First World War : A meeting of Cultures : 1915-2015

From March 10th 2015 to March 29th 2015

Pas-de-Calais, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France

On 10 March 1915, British troops launched an attack from the village of Neuve-Chapelle in order to regain control of Aubers Crest and head towards Lille. For three days, the Meerut and Lahore Divisions of the Indian Army, supported by the British IV Corps, fought tenaciously and gained 800 metres of land but at the price of over 12,000 deaths on each side of No Man’s Land. It was the Indian Army’s most important victory on the Western Front. The Tourist Office invites you to enjoy several events over the course of three weeks designed to pay tribute to the Indian soldiers and discover contemporary Indian culture. Official commemorations on Friday 13 march.

Symposium, Conference

Studious fighters. Archaeologists and art historians during the Great War.

From March 19th 2015 to March 20th 2015

Arras, France

In the first months of the Great War a handful of German intellectuals led the field conservation activity and study of heritage in the occupied territories of Belgium, northern France and Poland. Carried out in the Kunstschutz (artworks preservations department) this work consisted of archaeological excavations, museum studies, urban monographs and architectural studies. The work of the Kunstschutz extended from 1915 to 1920, with the Treaty of Versailles imposing on Germany the restitution of works of art removed during the conflict. Similarly, the Treaty of Riga (1921) forced Russia and Ukraine to return property of "historic, cultural and national value" to Poland. In connection with the centenary celebrations of the 1914-1918 war, the Centre for Research and Studies of History and Societies of the University of Artois (CREHS) is organising an international conference on issues related to this activity in a military framework. Bringing together German, Belgian and French historians, archaeologists and art historians, the symposium will examine in particular, on the Western front, the territories situated on both sides of the Franco-Belgian border and, on the Eastern Front, Poland, whose case is still poorly understood.

Thursday 19th March 2015 from 9 am to 6 pm and friday 20th March 2015 from 9 am to 1 pm.
