The Welsh National Book of Remembrance holds the names of 35,000 men and women who gave their lives in the First World War.

This exhibition tells the story of the Book and that of some of the names listed, as well as exploring how the Book has been used in remembering for peace. Visitors will have the chance to explore the Book through a new digital copy, created by the National Library of Wales. For the first time ever the names listed are available for everyone to see and research.

We will also begin to explore some of the further themes of the Wales for Peace project, in particular the key question: in the hundred years since the First World War, how has Wales contributed to the search for peace?
