On 11 November 1918, bells rang out in European cities to announce the end of the war. One hundred years later, bells will toll again in the same cities, and there will be military parades and exhibitions commemorating these events. Numerous books will be published, including those aimed at children. How should we tell children about these events? How can we attract their attention?  How can we convey the atmosphere and feel of times when possessing a car or phone was a luxury? What’s more important – the dates, or the events themselves and their consequences? And finally, what kind of impact can an illustration in a historical book have on a child?
