(Nov. 11) Watch live as French President Emmanuel Macron speaks at Armistice Day commemoration at the Pantheon. French President Emmanuel Macron is commemorating the 102nd anniversary of the Armistice Day, honouring those who died for France in two elaborate, solemn ceremonies in Paris on Wednesday. The French leader symbolically re-ignited the flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier beneath the Napoleon-era Arc Triomphe landmark in Paris, exactly 100 years after remains of an unidentified fighter were first interred there, representing all those who died in World War I without recognition. He also stopped at the nearby statue French wartime leader Georges Clemenceau. The holiday, originally created to honour the armistice signed on Nov. 11, 1918, is officially now called France’s “Day for Commemorating Victory and Peace and of Homage to All Those Who Died for France.” At the Arc de Triomphe ceremony, Macron read out the names of French forces killed in operations over the last year. In the afternoon, Macron will lead a ceremony to inter World War I fighter Maurice Genevoix in the Pantheon monument, which holds the remains of France’s most-revered figures. Genevoix authored a memoir called ” Those of ’14 ” seen as a definitive account of the daily life of soldiers in the war. Macron’s office said the work ” fixed for posterity the faces and voices, words and feelings” of the war.
