Douaumont

The battle of Verdun, February 21, 1916 - December 1916, 300 days and 300 nights of baited, appalling combat. 26.000.000 of shells fired by artilleries is 6 shells on one m2, of the thousands of shredded bodies, approximately 300.000 French and German soldiers reported missing. "time generates the lapse of memory". This reason led the committee of the Ossuary to decide the construction of a room where can be projected a audio-visual spectacle having for topic "the life of Hairy during the Battle" whose 130 000 French and German unknown bodies are piously preserved in the vault ones of the ossuary. This evocation invites us to the reconciliation and peace. Presentation of "the heroism of the combatant of Verdun" (life of hairy during the battle). Duration 20 minutes per Meetings: every 1/2 hours 120 places - simultaneous Translation in German and English
