“It is 13 th September 1916, and day is breaking over the Citadel of Verdun, a grey dawn with rain showers. A small group of tired poilus, coming from Fleury, are making their way towards Verdun. Louis, Camille, Emile and Jean have been ordered to leave the front line and descend to the Citadel, to take part in a ceremony about which they know nothing…”
Four men, four different destinies, four impressions of the war to describe, through their eyes and their emotions, the story of a conflict which will long haunt our collective memory…
Imagine you are the soldier called Jean. Meet his comrades to share the experience of the Underground Citadel, and relive the events which have made this place so symbolic, such as the Choice of the Unknown Soldier.
At Verdun, travel back through time and space.
