Lessons from WWI promo

Poignant, relevant, insightful
and a little scary


Now available on-demand
as video, podcast or transcript

Our panel of leading WWI historians and experts explored ways that an understanding of WWI might help us avoid slipping into a larger and more devastating world conflict through the crisis in Ukraine.

No one intended WWI. How did a relatively minor event evolve into a global cataclysm? What are the parallels? WWI, WWII and the conflict in Ukraine all involve the Baltic region. Why might that be? What lessons from WWI can be applied to the region, situation and conditions today to forestall escalation? What lessons from WWI might the diplomats and negotiators keep in mind as they explore the paths and roadblocks to peace?

If you attended, we created a transcript as a reference. It is a surprisingly interesting read. If you did not, choose your way of accessing the event. We have the webinar video, an audio podcast (great for drivetime) and the transcript available on-demand.

Thank you.

Canada and the Second World War at Sea

Active on many fronts during the Second World War, the Royal Canadian Navy played its best-known and arguably most crucial role in helping to keep Allied shipping lanes open in the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Canadian merchant ships and merchant sailors transported vital supplies to Allied forces and populations around the world. On Canada’s home front, maritime losses – including civilian passengers – were felt across the country, while naval imagery appeared in fundraising and propaganda materials. Canadians built ships, weapons, and equipment, or were encouraged to provide support through their volunteer war, its events, and its consequences on the waters.

Raising Funds for Humanitarian Relief

Humanitarian Relief

The idea for the webinar is to draw parallels between 1914 and 2022. Here is another!

In 1914, Germany’s aggression rolling into Belgium, and then into Europe, caused a massive humanitarian crisis displacing millions. Today, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused over 10 million Ukrainians to flee their homes. Desperate families of women, children and elderlies need shelter, food and care.

So we are asking you – our friends and the entire WWI community of interest to help. All funds will go directly to provide shelter, food and care for displaced Ukrainian refugees.

They need our help.
