Ceremony To Mark 100-Year Anniversary Of The End Of WWI

A ceremony is planned for next week to mark the 100-year anniversary of the end of World War 1 in London. The ceremony will feature prominent political leaders from Germany including German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and German Chancellor Angela Merkel and will be hosted by Queen Elizabeth II in Westminster Abbey. The ceremony will mark 100 years to the day of the end to the war that claimed at least 18 million lives from 1914 to 1918.

The official end of the war was on the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 and is set to be commemorated by a display of 10,000 flames that will illuminate the moat surrounding Westminster Abbey. The display will be named, "The Beyond the Deepening Shadow: The Tower Remembers."

Although German leaders will be commemorating the end of the war by attending the ceremony in London, there are no planned commemorations taking place in Germany. The November 11 armistice brought an end to the War to end all wars but will not be commemorated in the country that initiated the bloody war.

The German parliament is holding a combined commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the declaration of the first German Republic next week instead and will also mark the 80th anniversary of the brutal Nazi-era program against Jews known as the "Night of Broken Glass".

There will also be an art exhibition in the lobby of the German parliament called "1914/1918 - Not Then, Not Now, Not Ever." The November 11 armistice did not bring peace for Germans in the same way that it did in France and Britain. The end of the war brought revolution and in-fighting between far-left and far-right groups in Germany.

Daniel Schoenpflug, a historian at Berlin's Free University's Friedrich-Meinecke-Institute authored a new book called "A World on Edge". Schoenpflug notes, "One can't reduce it to the simple fact that one country won the war and the other lost. Germany is a country that draws practically its entire national narrative out of the defeat of 1945" as opposed to the defeat of 1918. In Turkey, the loosing of the war brought a similar collapse of the Ottoman empire and gave rise to the founder of the modern Turkish republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

The end of World War 1 brought feelings of resentment from Germans as reparations and conditions were imposed on the country by the victorious allied powers. The Nazi party capitalized on the defeat by propagating the "stab-in-the-back" myth which holds Germany's civilian leaders responsible for "selling out" the German army by signing the armistice.

Give the spectators a taste of mustard gas to really bring them back to that hell their great grandparents suffered through. If anyone has been to Portland lately it’s like the trenches of wwi, from the piss & shit, dope addicts wandering around looking shell shocked, and a constant burn from aerosol irritants. Lovely place to never visit.

Can you imagine still thinking that Germany “initiated” world war 1, and that the start of the war was as simple as one country having all the blame, and be able to call yourself a journalist at the same time?

No more brother wars.

100 years ago the world ended the

WAR TO END ALL WARS.

The after war policies inflected by the winners gave raise to Communism, National Socialism and Fascism. Thus starting 100 years of other wars, which included WWII, which did not end all wars either. It just made war possible to finally wipe out humanity and/or millions at a time.
