REMEMBERING THE WAR TO END ALL WAR  

 

- Are you a school/college/group assembly leader?
- Are you a history or ethics teacher?
- Are you using PPU resource packs for teachers and students?

Here is some material that could be useful.
There's a reflective article on the present relevance of Remembrance Day; there are extracts from contemporary accounts of the famous Christmas truce and other examples of co-operation across no-man's land; and contemporary accounts of the Great War itself as seen from the front lines. An exchange of letters with Erich Maria Remarque, the author of the famous antiwar novel 'All Quiet On The Western Front' is also included.

All or any of this material lends itself for use in assembly hall or classroom, as background to studies of the Great War, or stimulus for discussion of war and peace issues.
