The World Remembers

TWRThe World Remembers is a unique opportunity for remembrance, reconciliation and education. To mark the WWI Centenary, we will project in light the 680,000 names of those killed in 1917 on the Government Conference Centre in Ottawa. Each name will appear at a designated hour and minute. You can search for the exact appearance time of any name at www.theworldremembers.ca. More than 21,000 Canadians, including those killed at Vimy and Passchendaele, will appear as well as names from the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Germany, the United States, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Slovenia, China and the British Indian Army.

The display, made possible by the support of Commemorate Canada, will take place each night starting at 8.30pm September 24th. The final name will appear at sunrise November 11th. The display will also run by day at the Canadian War Museum. By recognising the WWI losses from Canada and other participating nations, we look to the future with hope and understanding. For more information go to www.theworldremembers.ca.
