Launch of the List of Names

04-08-2014

Launch of the List of Names project (at 12.00). A non-stop projection of the names of the people who died exactly 100 years ago to the day and whose deaths were a consequence of the war on Belgian soil, or are commemorated as such. This projection will continue day by day until the end of 2018. At the same time, a website will also be launched that will allow people all around the world to look up their own relatives among the dead and perhaps even fill in any missing details. The List of Names projects will be supported throughout its four-year duration by Gone West , the cultural programme initiated by the Province of West Flanders to mark the centenary commemorations of the First World War. As a result, the list will be activated at 10.00 by officials from both the city and the province.
