Ypres: 2014 Events
Ypres Tattoo Memorial International Parade of Military Bands
Almost 100 years ago, the area around Ypres was the setting for one of the bloodiest conflicts in history.
Now that the last witnesses are no longer with us, the In Flanders Fields museum has become an even more important entry point for the history of the First World War in Flanders.
The In Flanders Fields museum will bring visitors face to face with the consequences of the Great War.
Both young and old can find out about life and death on the front at Ypres.
The exhibition, with poignant video projections, exclusive audio extracts and state of the art multimedia applications, will plunge you right into life on the front. Each visitor will receive a 'poppy' bracelet enabling them to discover four personal stories of ‘ordinary citizens’ during the Great War. Once you are connected, you will be put in contact with a person just like you, who lived through the war a hundred years ago.
