Expoziţia comemorativă
The exhibition includes photographs, newspapers, maps, postcards which reflects some aspects of the war such as the life of soldiers in times of respite, medical personnel on the battlefield and behind the lines, the horrors of military conflagration, others.

The exhibition is channeled in two directions:

  1. Aspects from the battles on the Western front (German armies acting against French, British and Belgian armies), on the Eastern front (German and Austro-Hungarian army fighting against the Russian army) and on the Balkan front where part of Austro-Hungarian army fought against Serbs. War battle scene is completed by Romania's involvement in World War I in 1916, which inscribed a separate page in the war history with the battles from Mărăşti, Mărăşeşti and Oituz (1917).

  2. Bessarabia and the Bessarabians in World War I. Incorporated into the Russian Empire, Bessarabia had an important contribution under economic and social aspects, the human dimension being most valuable. A big part of future members of Sfatului Ţării and other well-known personalities are found among the participants of the Great War; or common solders called to duty found their rightful place in the exhibition. The research and the valorification of the photographic heritage has allowed us to discover a range of Bessarabian soldiers, participating in that hellish carnage, complementing the list of Bessarabian soldiers. Among them we mention Simion Murafa (v. Cotiujenii Mari, Soroca), who led a sanitation team on the Romanian front, Onufrii Şerevschi (v. Sofia, Drochia), Petru Cebotari (v. Moşeni, Râşcani), Ion Tcaciuc (v. Ivancea, Orhei), Gheorghe Beschieru (v. Samaşcani, Orhei), Ion Spătărel (Chişinău) etc. A special page in the history of war was signed by the sisters of charity, including the Bessarabian Iulia Dicescu (one of P. Dicescu' daughters), Sofia Cantacuzino, Elena Ivanov-Spătărel, Eugenia Colodiev, Zinovia Radu-Maiorova etc.

The exhibition message is also conveyed by the newspaper „Iskry" (supplement of „Russkoe slovo") from 1915, with reportages from the battlefield and from behind the front line, a mini-collection of postcards and war map.
