Remembrance Day Ceremony, November 11th, 2019

The Battle of Hamel, July 4, 1918

Many people do this each year, but this year the moment will be of even greater significance, as it will mark a century since the official signing of the Paris Peace Treaties in 1919 that officially announced a new era of peace in Europe and the world. The actual fighting had ended the year before, on the 11th of the 11th at 11.00 am, which is why we come together to remember and try to make sense of the horror unleashed between the years 1914 and 1918.
