EXHIBITION

Forgotten heroes. Animals in the Great War.

They are millions to have accompanied the soldiers, to have lived and suffered the same hell and to have been killed on the battlefield.
Horses, dogs, cats, cows, donkeys, pigeons … They are the precious helpers of the hairy, at a time when the army can hardly do without them.
