The Army Nurse Corps z. s. is a historical association consisting of young women, who share an interest in the history and culture of the United States of the 1940s and World War II. Our main topic of interest are American Army nurses. The Army Nurse Corps has been an official part of the US Army since 1901. Our task is to authentically represent the appearance, uniforms and equipment of nurses and the conditions prevailing in American medical installations during WWII. Through collecting, travelling and contact with veterans we try to recreate historical realities as faithfully as possible. We take care of details such as hair, makeup and personal items. We want to show that ladies like us, almost 80 years ago, had to deal with much worse conditions, while working with the awareness that the lives of hundreds of soldiers are in their hands.
At present, we are the only organized and all-female reenacting group portraying the Army Nurse Corps in Central Europe. In our ranks we currently have 13 members and recruits from all over the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and France. Our activities are based on participation in historical reenactments at home and abroad, organization of static display and lectures, as well as cooperation with historical institutions and those promoting American culture.
We are open to new collaborations.
