A century after the end of the Great War, The World Remembers
Concordia Library commemorates millions of lives lost with a large-scale projection.
More than nine million military personnel died during the First World War, which ended 100 years ago. Since 2014, an initiative called The World Remembers (TWR) has been projecting the names and nations of the lives lost in each year of the conflict.
From September 12 to November 11, the project comes to Concordia’s Webster Library on LB-2.
Displays begin at 8 a.m. each day and wrap up at 8:45 p.m.
The projection’s order will be programmed so that visitors to the library can know the precise day, hour and minute a name will appear.
The timing is available on the TWR site.
Participating countries include Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Italy, Nepal, Pakistan, New Zealand, Slovenia, South Africa, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States.
