Welcome to The 20th Century World At War Exhibit

This digital exhibit has been developed by students and faculty in HIST 1012 - Empire, Revolution, and Global War,  a History course at the University of Colorado Boulder.  We are highlighting items from Norlin Library Special Collections in order to explore the topic of The 20th Century World at War. Norlin Library Special Collections and Archives contain many primary source documents relating to World War I, World War II and the Cold War. We have examined several of those documents in this site as a window onto the era in which they were created. We hope you enjoy our curation of items from the collection, the questions they inspired us to ask, the context they inspired us to provide, and the stories they inspired us to research and share.

Please use the navigation links above to see individual faculty- and student-created pages,  click on one of the highlighted items below, or browse the entire set of images used to create this site.
