New York, Apr 2 (AP) The French embassy in the US is staging a yearlong series of events commemorating the 100th anniversary of America’s entry into World War I.
The embassy’s Cultural Services kicked off the programs in New York City with events focusing on art, literature, history and French-American relations.
The Museum of the City of New York on Wednesday opens a new exhibit, “Posters and Patriotism: Selling World War I in New York.”
The exhibit focuses on the prominent role played by New York City as the centre for Allied propaganda during the war.
Other programs and events are planned for the city and elsewhere in the US in the coming months.
The US formally declared war on Germany on April 6, 1917.
