Armistice Day

Picture of a devastated war zone

November 11th is dedicated to the end of world War I signed on November 11th 1918 and marked by the allied victory (France, Italy, the British Empire, the Russian Empire and the United States) against Germany. The day became a public holiday in October 1922 after the Great War veterans requested it. The Law of February 28th 2012 turned November 11th into the day we also pay homage to pay tribute to all the civilians and troops who died for France in past and current conflicts similarly to the American Memorial Day.
