Virtual Cenotaph - First World War, Edmonton
Remembrance Day 2018 marked the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended what history knows as the First World War. Edmontonians served and sacrificed themselves for our nation in that conflict.
We have built this virtual cenotaph to pay tribute to Edmontonians who gave their lives in the First World War and to their families, some of whose names (and even Edmonton neighbourhoods) have thankfully not been lost in the passage of time.
The names of the soldiers you see are drawn from official Commonwealth War Graves Commission documents and supplied by Veterans Affairs Canada. The list is not complete, but the video you are watching does provide a compelling experience in pixels of the price paid by Edmontonians.
Lest we forget.
