Memorial University was founded, and is aptly named, as a living memorial to those who served in the First World War. It was later re-dedicated to also honour Newfoundland's war dead of the Second World War.
Each year, a Ceremony of Remembrance is held to reflect on the lives lost and the sacrifices made by those who fought for country and future.
Ceremony of Remembrance 2012
The 2012 ceremony will be held on Friday, Nov. 9, at 11 a.m, in the DF Cook Recital Hall in the
School of Music building.
Memorial University is closed on Monday, Nov. 12, to mark Remembrance Day. No classes are scheduled for that day. However, the Queen Elizabeth II Library is scheduled to be open.
The Newfoundland Book of Remembrance is now online and features page-turning software. (Note: you may need to install Flash on your system to access the pages.)
