Remembrance Day Nov 11 Is A Virtual Event in Dresden

Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the official end of World War I hostilities on November 11, 1918. World War I was a massive conflict that was played out over the whole globe, but particularly in Europe, where troops from Canada supported the Allied forces. World War I resulted in the loss of huge numbers of lives amongst both civilians and military personnel. Many more people were badly injured. The war left great emotional scars in the servicemen, who had experienced it, and in the communities, whose sons, brothers, fathers, uncles, and even grandfathers had died. Remembrance Day commemorates those who died in armed conflicts, particularly in and since World War I. In Canada, November 11 is officially called Remembrance Day, but it is also known as Armistice Day and Poppy Day.
