Centenaire de la Grande Guerre

Amiens in the Great War

 

During the four years of conflict, the inhabitants of Amiens adapted themselves to the vagaries of living in a city near the front-line: welcoming foreign soldiers, helping injured soldiers, protecting major buildings... How was life organised?

The city was deeply affected by the four years of conflict, not just the population but also those who came to fight or seek refuge in Amiens.

The Cathedral and the Great War

 

 

Protected against the onslaught of the armies, Notre-Dame cathedral remains today a place of remembrance for this terrible conflict.
