Remembering the Christmas Truce of 1914

Christmas Truce

On Sunday, December 20th, KPR Presents marked the 100th anniversary of the Christmas Truce of 1914, when soldiers took a break from the horrors of World War I to share an evening of song, snacks, and soccer. Kaye McIntyre visited the The National World War I Museum in Kansas City to talk to Lora Vogt about the Christmas Truce, how the museum is marking the occasion this month, and their new on-line exhibit on the Truce.
