Christmas Truce of 1914 Story Told through Songs and Letters
The program took place at St. Susannah’s Church in Dedham and told of the spontaneous World War I Christmas Truce of 1914 that brought a temporary end to fighting in the trenches while soldiers crossed through no man’s land to celebrate Christmas together. The story was brought alive through songs and letters written by soldiers and their families. You can view the program in its entirety here.
