#Remembranceis silence

A Remembrance Day item from our colleagues at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

#Remembranceis silence

Remembrance means many different things to people around the world. For us at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, remembrance is our day-job and our passion. We are committed to ensuring that the fallen of the Commonwealth forces of the two World Wars are never forgotten, through our work every day of the year.
For many others, remembrance is reflected in the two minutes silence held at 11am on 11 November to remember all those who have endured or been affected by conflict. Join us on our social media channels from 11am as we join this moment of silence to reflect and remember those we commemorate with a special remembrance video.
What does remembrance mean to you?Join the conversation and tell us what remembrance means to you by posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #Remembranceis. You could film a video, share a poignant photo, or tell us in your own words. However you choose to join the conversation, you will be joining a Commonwealth-wide opportunity to share what this important theme means to us all.

This teaching pack encourages young people to consider what this time of year means to different communities around the world.
