Armistice Day 2022
Ypres' civilian war victims
- Nieuwerck, Ieper
Armistice Day is a special day for Ypres. Every year, the Poppy Parade and the Last Post at 11am are fixed ingredients in a broader programme commemorating the end of WWI.
On this day, however, the city of Ypres and the IFFM also want to remember the civilian victims; the Ypres people who lost their lives during or as a result of WWI. Last year IFFM started an initiative with commemorative keys spread all over the city.
