At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Never forget.

Between 1914 and 1918, more than 70 countries participated in one of the deadliest conflicts in history. More than 9 million people were killed, twice that number were wounded, the First World War was a turning point during the 20th century and it contained within it the seeds of World War II.

Witnesses of this chapter in history have almost all passed on, however France commemorates the centenary of the First World War. Exhibitions, ceremonies, works of theatre, dance, and so on will take place throughout this period. Through the "Centennial" umbrella, thousands of events throughout France will maintain the duty of remembering and reminding future generations of the atrocity of this war which was to be the "war to end all wars".
