Remembrance Day

Series: Traditions and Special Events

This video examines the history of Remembrance Day. The first Remembrance Day was held in 1919 to commemorate the end of the First World War. This video includes footage of scenes in the air, at sea and in the trenches. There are voice excerpts from Churchill and Hitler, a reading from the poem In Flanders Field and background music from the time.

Today, millions of people pause at 11 a.m. on the 11th day of the 11th month to remember those who fought, died and served our country during all wars and armed conflicts.

A teacher's guide is available.
