November 2014 - 62153 Ablain-Saint-Nazaire

This new memorial, one of the largest in the world, is resolutely modern and inspiring due to its elliptical shape as designed by the architect Philippe Prost. It will be erected to pay homage to the 590,000 soldiers, friends and enemies of the past, who lost their lives on the battlefields of Nord-Pas de Calais between 1914 and 1918.
