This event is being organized and hosted by the Department of History, University of Waterloo.
The goal of these sessions is to promote discussion about the evolution of Remembrance Day. Who does it include and exclude? Does its importance differ between generations, nationalities or other factors? How have opinions of this commemorative day changed over the years? Is Remembrance Day still relevant?
