Do you remember the video about the World Digital Library that is in the section 1a?

So now you have the opportunity to use it.


Turn  you  into a detective

You are a young detective that has just open his/her own office. You have learned from your big city, where you have grown,  to see things with a special look. You are able to appreciate the small details, textures, colors, smells, people walking the streets … everything has some relevant information for you. And based on your undoubted talents you are the best solving  the most difficult cases.

A woman has just appeared in your brand new office .
She shows you a picture, a poster. She is really interested in knowing what it means. The poster is from an old lady, almost one hundred years, that she take care in the home where she works.
This lady has alzehimer, a disease that prevents her from remembering his past. She has no family, friends, or anyone who takes over her.
The old lady spends the days and nights looking her old and used poster, trying to remember …
The woman wants to know what was behind the poster, what does it means for the elderly. And thus attempting to create a link that allows you to help the old lady remembers.

Apart of the image itself, you have found that in its back said:

For the years that we were fighting together, remember our friendship.

Yours sincerily. Anne.

Your work, let this case be solved.

Clue 1 : Take a look into the World Digital Library.
Clue 2 : Search using the timeline, and Europe.

1. When you find out where and when the old women was fighting with her friend, write this piece of information in a post in your blog.

2. Answer this poll.

3. If you have enought time comment the practicing. Please specially comment if you had had any kind of problem and how you had solved it.
