Mrs. Wilson’s Knitting Circle: Russia’s Sisters of Mercy

Saturday, Aug. 6 - 10:30 a.m. Zoom Conference

Nurses tended and mended around the world in WWI. On the Eastern Front, Russian women broke barriers previously blocked by gender and forged a new path for themselves as the Empire rose and fell. Dr. Laurie Stoff joins this month’s Mrs. Wilson’s Knitting Circle to unwind how Russia’s ‘sisters of mercy’ experienced and impacted the Great War. In support of the exhibition Empires at War.
