The ex­hi­bi­tion also in­cludes dis­plays on loan from the French Min­istry of Cul­ture’s Me­diatheque de l’Ar­chi­tec­ture et du Pat­ri­moine - Dif­fu­sion RMN, in an ef­fort to draw a clearer pic­ture of how in­jured sol­diers were treated, what kind of ma­te­ri­als doc­tors had avail­able to them and how med­i­cal sup­plies were traded and moved.
