The World Remembers

Plan Your Visit

As part of Remembrance Day commemoration activities, the Canadian War Museum hosts The World Remembers, a visual installation presenting more than 3,100,000 names of military personnel from both sides of the First World War who died between 1914 and 1922.

Created by Canadian actor R. H. Thomson, the commemoration presents the names of men and women from the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, the United States, Turkey, Belgium, Australia, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Italy, New Zealand, Slovenia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and China – all countries represented in The World Remembers project.

International names are displayed for 23 seconds; Canadian names, for 100 seconds. The display at the Museum will run from November 1 to November 11, with only a portion of the more than 3 million names. The last name will be displayed at sunset on November 11.
