The World Remembers
Webster Library, September 12 – November 11, 2018
2nd floor, to the right of entrance
8 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. Free.

Concordia Library is pleased to announce a new display in the library entitled The World Remembers which will run from September 12 through November 11, 2018.

This display, curated by the non-profit organization The World Remembers, is an international and multi-institutional commemoration of those who died in WWl. The lives lost in the 1914-1918 war have been remembered collectively, but forgotten personally.

For this reason, the names of more than 1 million soldiers killed in 1918, including over 23,000 Canadian soldiers, will be projected in the library.

Each name is programmed to appear at a precise minute, allowing anyone anywhere in the world to find the exact moment when a lost relative will appear. For more information about this project, please consult the The World Remembers.
