1917: How One Year Changed the World
is the first exhibition to demonstrate how three key events of that year--American's entry into World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, and the signing of the Balfour Declaration
, in which Great Britain indicated support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine--brought about political, cultural, and social changes that dramatically reshaped the United States' role in the world and directly affected everyday Americans.
1917: How One Year Changed the World is co-organized by the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia and the American Jewish Historical Society in New York and has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.Event type:Exhibitions, Family-friendly, Members Events
