Remembrance Day in 10 languages

Today we celebrate 100 years since the end of the First World War.
We will remember those who fought for peace.
Remembrance Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, to remember soldiers who fought in wars past and present. It originally started as a day to remember those who had died during the First World War and the date was set to coincide with the Armistice which was signed on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.
This year marks the centenary of the Armistice and is being celebrated widely across the U.K. and the world. The poppy is a symbol of this day, thanks to the profusion of them growing on the First World War battlefields and Lieutenant-Colonel John Mc Crae’s famous poem,’In Flanders Fields’
