Berlin's Great War Stories

The Great War ended over 100 years ago in 1918, and was an event that significantly impacted the lives of people living in Berlin, Ontario, which would change it’s city name to Kitchener in the middle of it all.

Learn about World War One through a wide range of stories and people: those who fought bravely and those who bravely refused to fight; some who volunteered and others forced to enlist; others who tried to enlist but were refused; as well as the many women who contributed on the ‘home front.’ Walk through Berlin’s tumultuous four years of war and engage with some lesser-known people and stories from Kitchener’s past.
