About The World Remembers: 1914-1918
Over the years 2014 – 2018, the project will display the million of names of the soldiers killed in WWI in names-display installations in Canada and other participating countries. The names will be displayed in participating schools, universities, libraries, museums and other community organizations as well as online at www.theworldremembers.ca. All names will be respectfully and meaningfully presented in Canada and in other nations regardless of the armies in which they fought. We have the participation of Canada and 12 other WWI Nations. Each of the names will be programmed to appear at a precise minute allowing students and families to find the exact moment when the name of a lost relative will appear.
