The development included the installation of the museum's Holocaust Exhibition which was opened by the Queen on 6 June The collection contains very little material that is overtly 'anti-enemy' negative propaganda. A more direct and chilling example of material provenance would be difficult to find. However, the trustees of the IWM — which was then occupying cramped premises in South Kensington — persuaded Rothermere to knock down only the side wings and lease them the remaining structure. The archive's holdings range from the papers of senior British and Commonwealth army, navy and air officers, to the letters, diaries and memoirs of lower-ranked servicemen and of civilians.

From some 4, Americans served in the Armed Forces. The war to end all wars! In September the building received Grade II listed building status. A later phase of the remodelling will provide a new, step-free main entrance below the portico The first phase of work has focused on the remodelling of the atrium.

If you see any unattended bags or packages or have concerns about security issues on your visit please report this to a member of staff. The exhibition honours the memory of the Syrian archaeologist Khaled al-Asaad, who was murdered by ISIS when he refused to disclose the location of priceless artefacts in the ancient city of Palmyra. While this location was more central and in a prestigious area for museums, the accommodation itself proved cramped and inadequate [16] and in a new permanent location was found south of the River Thames in Southwark. You can also book tours at the information desk subject to availability however, we recommend booking online in advance. Unfortunately, World War I didn't prevent another catastrophic European war as diplomatic maneuverings at the close of the war and immediately following ensured that another war would follow! Please let our staff know if you have any dietary requirements.
