Closing for The World Remembers display at MIWSFPA Sunday

After two months of displaying the names of military personnel killed in the First World War, the final name will scroll onto screens at four locations around Niagara on Sunday, Nov. 11.

This year marks the centenary of the end of the First World War, and Brock University is involved in The World Remembers, a Canadian-led international project to commemorate those killed during the war and those who died of their injuries in the years that followed.

Since Sept. 12, the names of more than one million victims have been appearing on screens in the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, as well as in the James A. Gibson Library at Brock’s main campus and two other spots in Niagara.

A closing ceremony for the Niagara project will be held starting at 8:45 p.m. Sunday in the lobby of the MIWSFPA with the final name to appear on the screen at 9:01 p.m.
