NEVADA CITY– The Impact of World War I on the Formation of the Modern Middle East is scheduled for Friday, November 9th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church, 175 Ridge Rd., Nevada City.  Marwan D. Hanania, PhD., Assistant Professor of History, San Diego Mesa College, will explore the relationship between WWI and the Middle East, where America’s soldiers still fight today.  Hosted by the Nevada County Historical Society, Hanania has many fascinating facts to share.

This program is part of a project entitled Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of WWI which is supported by California Humanities through an Humanities for All Quick Grant. 

Although the battlefields of World War I were far from rural Nevada County, its residents were deeply engaged in the war’s issues and the challenges it presented.  The war was the most consequential event of the 20th century, yet it has almost faded from modern memory. Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of World War I is a multifaceted program designed to reconnect our community to this transformational event in our nation’s history.  Our program is scheduled to coincide with the worldwide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice between Germany and the Allies that brought and end to the fighting of the Western Front on November 11, 1918.
