Law in War’ introduces visitors to the key principles of the law of war. It invites visitors to become aware of the importance of respecting it to guarantee human dignity in times of war,” explains Louise Debugne.

“The National Museum of Military History is known for its diverse approaches to the Second World War and to Luxembourg military history. The focus on international humanitarian law offers the visitor an additional perspective that has not been considered in Luxembourg until now,” continues Frank Rockenbrod.
