Association Tourisme et mémoire de la Grande Guerre

À la veille du centenaire de la Première Guerre mondiale, les représentants d’une trentaine d’offices de tourisme, comités régionaux et départementaux du tourisme du nord et du nord-est de la France ont signé le 13 septembre 2012 à Albert (Somme) l’acte de naissance de l’association « Tourisme et mémoire de la Grande Guerre – Le réseau touristique du front occidental ». Née sous l’impulsion des offices de tourisme de Château-Thierry, Meaux, Reims et Verdun et présidée par Guy Valembois, Directeur Général de l’office de tourisme de Reims, l’association a pour but de favoriser la mise en réseau des structures, de coordonner les actions liées au centenaire et de mutualiser la promotion et la communication dans un objectif de cohérence et de pérennisation. En effet, l’enjeu de ce rapprochement est non seulement le décloisonnement des territoires, mais également la durabilité de la mise en commun des moyens au-delà de 2018.

 

Centre André Malraux de Sarajevo

Founded by a Frenchman Francis Bueb during the siege of the Bosnian capital, the André-Malraux Centre has gone from strength to strength and constitutes an exemplary French outpost in this part of the continent where on a number of occasions Europe has needed to seek a sense and purpose. As a result of its international recognition despite or because of its atypical reputation, the André-Malraux Centre was awarded the city of Sarajevo’s most prestigious honour (Award of 6 April 1945, anniversary of the liberation). Since the day it was founded until the present day, it has enjoyed the support of many personalities from the world of culture and art. But behind this prestigious recognition, lies the daily unrelenting work that the André-Malraux Centre does to promote the French language and culture.

Historial de la Grande Guerre

At the Great War Museum, one can trace European history from 1870 up to the post-war period by following a time-line which makes its way through four exhibition halls.

They contain items which belonged to the three principal warring empires, Germany, France and Great Britain.

 

L’Institut historique allemand

The Institute of German history (IHA) is a key player in internationally focussed historical research. The Institute plays an active role in the debate on social sciences, in particular in the exchange of scientific and socio-political knowledge between France and Germany.

Mémorial de Verdun

In the middle of the Verdun hills still bearing the scars of the millions of shells which killed more than 300,000 people and wounded 400,000 others in less than one year, the Verdun Memorial retraces the story of the most famous battle of the First World War. Built in 1967, under the auspices of the academician and war veteran Maurice Genevoix, it ranks among the main European museums of the Great War. For those who want to understand what really happened at Verdun during the Great War, and to explore, feel, understand and pass on to others what Verdun was all about, a visit to the Memorial is a must.

Les nouvelles technologies guerrières sont  aussi abordées : aviation, blindés, mitrailleuses et gaz toxiques.

As part of its work for the good of society, the Forestry Commission and its partners are involved in managing the forest and the natural areas of tomorrow so that they can be part of the solution to the major issues of sustainable development: the need to tackle climate change, to develop renewable energy forms, preserve biodiversity, water quality and anticipate natural hazards... whilst ensuring that the essential function of producing wood can continue as efficiently as possible.

Les Rendez-vous de Weimar

The Weimar Festival is a cultural project which has followed in the footsteps of the History Festival at Blois (itself twinned with Weimar), and has since 2009, staged several dozen varied events based on the one guiding theme every year, that of history, over the three days during which it is held. The festival includes debates, conferences, films, school projects, round tables and musical evenings organised within the peaceful surroundings of Weimar (Thuringe), one of the cradles of German culture. Having looked at the role of democracy, travel and violence in history, participants of the 2012 Weimar History Festival were invited to think about neighbourhoods (Nachbarschaften).
