Photos of the event : The Great Vigil

The Great Vigil 
On 10 November 2018 from 5.15 pm, the Artois sky shone down on the night.

A moment suspended in time, more than 10 000 people lit up 23,000 candles in 274 War cemeteries in the Arras region. 

All gathered for a one last vigil to remember the soldiers who didn’t see the sun rise on the 11th of November 1918, nor hear the bells, sounding the end of the War, one hundred years ago.

All the photos of the event at La Grande Veillée.
