In accordance with French government directives concerning COVID-19, Historial of the Great War (both museums in Péronne and Thiepval) is closed to the public until further notice.
Inaugurated on 1 July 2016 by the President of the French Republic, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, the Thiepval Museum is dedicated to the battles of the Somme and remembering the men involved.
On 25 April each year, in commemoration of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) and its engagement in the First World War, services of remembrance are held not only in Australia and New Zealand, but also in France, Belgium, Turkey and other theatres of war throughout the world.
From 9 April to 16 May 1917, the forces of Great Britain, Canada, Newfoundland, Australia and New Zealand confronted the German Army at Arras.
This app Reporter 14-18, is part of the will of the Historial to develop appropriate mediations through digital tools, to provide the keys to understanding the museum to different audiences.
A strong partnership has developed between various Euro-regional museums and sites of remembrance from Ypres, in Belgium, to the Aisne, in France.
