Commemoration in Stone and in Silence. The Menin Gate and the Last Post Ceremony as Lieu de Mémoire
(Dominiek Dendooven) THE LOW COUNTRIES - 2014, № 22, PP. 20-29
“Who will remember, passing through this Gate, / The unheroic dead who fed the guns?” Siegfried Sassoon used this words on the day after the unveiling of the Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres in 1927. Today the Gate is a strong place of commemoration and the Last Post Ceremony a collective act of remembrance for people of all persuasions.
