Memorial Day in Paris

Yesterday was Memorial Day in the US and I thought that since I have many visitors from North America I would take this opportunity to show you one of the monuments that was erected in honor of all the Americans who died during the WWI in France. It's located at Place de l'Amiral de Grasse in the 16th arrondissement. Of course I don't forget that Americans were not this only ones to die for France, Canadians, Australians, English, Scottish... and many more also came to our rescue. May this never happen again.

  1. Thank you, Eric. It's a beautiful sculpture and now it's on my list of places to see if and when I return to Paris.

  4. Absolument. May us never forget what we suffered because this is the way to love what we cherish and what counts in the present. I think we need to know that. I do anyway. I do.

    A good photo exhibition by Excelsior in l'Orangerie of the Luxembourg garden : 1914-1918 WW1.
    In addition to those you listed, there were the Chinese, Japanese, Indians and those from the colonies who either fought or helped the Entente Powers.
