Provincial Archives Launches Final Video In The First World War Series

Released on November 5, 2018

The Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the launch of its video “Amiens, Armistice and Aftermath”, the fifth and final video in the From the Prairies to the Trenches video series.  All five videos will be screened at an event co-hosted by the Provincial Archives and the Provincial Capital Commission at the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Shumiatcher Theatre, in Regina on November 7.

“As we commemorate the Armistice that ended the First World War, we have the opportunity to reflect on the importance of archives in preserving historical records for current and future generations,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Archives Ken Cheveldayoff said.  “Archives capture events, stories, voices and images to connect citizens with their past in a very real way.”

The video series examines the Saskatchewan experience at home and abroad during the First World War, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the War.  Materials from a vast collection of archival sources were selected to tell the stories of soldiers, nurses, politicians, farmers, and women’s groups in Saskatchewan communities and on the battlefields of the First World War.

“The Archives is proud to present these videos in tribute to the many men, women and families that together defined the Saskatchewan experience,” Provincial Archivist Lynda McIntyre said.  “We hope that the videos will be enjoyed and used in educational programming for years to come.”

The first four videos are currently available in English on the Provincial Archives’ YouTube channel, which is accessible through its web site at www.saskarchives.com.  They may also be viewed at Government House in Regina and at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon.

Through a major initiative with Radio-Canada, La Cité at the University of Regina and the Société historique de la Saskatchewan, the videos were remastered to provide French narration and voices.  The French versions of the first four videos are available on Radio-Canada’s web site at https://ici.radio-canada.ca/nouvelle/1126093/premiere-guerre-francais-archives-saskatchewan.  The fifth video will be available at all sites following the launch.

The November 7 event is free and open to the public.  Screening begins at 6:30 p.m.
