About this Event

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) and the Antrim & Down Branch of the Western Front Association are delighted to welcome a presentation by Piet Chielens, director of the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres.

Piet Chielens is currently the director of the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ieper (Ypres), Belgium. After 25 years he will retire as museum director in June 2021 and return to the IFFM as a volunteer. He has been responsible for the museum’s permanent exhibitions, as well as a number of temporary exhibitions up to the present upgrade. From 1992 to 2007, he was also artistic director of Peace Concerts Passendale. He aims for a constant renewal of the memory of the Great War in Flanders and to give special attention to the ways in which micro- (personal, family and local) and macro-history (that of cultures, nations, and the world) can be linked. In addition to numerous publications in Dutch, he has co-authored two books in English: The Great War Seen from the Air. In Flanders Fields 1914–1918 (with Birger Stichelbaut, 2013), and Unquiet Graves. Execution Sites of the Great War in Flanders (with Julian Putkowski, 2000).

This event will take place on zoom. Sign-up to the event will close one hour before the event begins. The zoom link will also issue one hour before the beginning of the event.
