Rememberance Day/Armistice Day/Veteran's Day

When World War I came to an end much of the world heaved a sigh of relief. Millions of soldiers and civilians had died, and it was time to rebuild and heal. To make sure that the world would remember what happened during World War I for years to come, it was decided that November 11th - the date when the war came to an end - would be a day of rememberance. In Britain and other Commonwealth countries people wear poppies on their clothes to show that they have not forgotten. For more books of interest please visit the the World War I feature .
