Inauguration of the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette International Memorial

Programme of national events marking the centenary of the First World War


Built alongside the French National Cemetery at the summit of Notre-Dame-de-Lorette plateau, the International memorial designed by architect Philippe Prost will bear the names of the 600,000 soldiers who lost their lives in the region during the First World War. The names will be presented in alphabetical order, without any reference to nationality, so that the friends and foes of yore may rest in peace, together. An initiative of Nord & Pas-de-Calais Council, the memorial will be opened by French president François Hollande on 11 November 2014.
