Explore the lasting impact of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, 100 years later.
Though considered a victory, the Battle of Vimy Ridge (April 9–12, 1917) was also one of Canada’s costliest engagements during the First World War. Over the past century, Canadians have remembered and commemorated this battle in many different ways and for different reasons.
This souvenir catalogue explores not just the attack on Vimy Ridge but also the century of commemoration that has followed. It is a potent reminder that commemoration is a way of constructing the past and shaping our sense of national identity.
