On Armistice Day, President Francois Hollande has inaugurated a new memorial to commemorate nearly 600,000 soldiers who were killed in the first World War in Northern France. The memorial and the eclipse of gold steel plates called the Ring of Remembrance is in a military cemetery near the town of Arras. Mr. Hollande says its aim was to commemorate all victims.
“What we wanted to do was to open a book of rock and steel in which our written all the names of the soldiers who died here, whatever their origin, whatever their nationality, whatever their religion.”
Armistice Day ceremonies have been held around the world. In Canada, tens of thousands of people attended an event of national war memorial in Ottawa, where one of the monuments guards was shot dead by an Islamic convert last month.
