Paris, 5 November 2014
The Virtual Museum is the Foundation's contribution to the AFS Centennial celebrations and went online today. It will be presented to a larger public during Returnee Day following the AFS World Congress in Paris.
A Home for Our History
In 2012, the AFS Foundation started creating a virtual museum. We built a home for our history with individual rooms (in 3D) for each period, up to the1990s. In vintage environments you have access to picture galleries, video clips and audio recordings. The AFS Story lets you explore the past and relive your own memories.
The Archive contains a comprehensive collection of material on the history of AFS with hundreds of documents, letters, images, video clips, audio files, literature and some biographical information on ambulance drivers.
The Virtual Museum is an ongoing project. First online in November 2014, it is continuously being expanded.
A Location for Your Story
You are part of our history. If you have a story to tell and would like to share it, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. AFS has many facets and its story is the sum of many individual stories!
