The public library will display a slideshow of more than 20,400 names of Canadians killed in 1917, including those killed at Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele. Each name is programmed to appear at an exact day, hour and minute, so that viewers can know when a relative’s name will appear. There will also be names from the United Kingdom, France, Australia, India, Belgium, Germany, the United States, New Zealand, Italy, Turkey, the Czech Republic, China and Slovenia.
The display will start on September 25 and will run each day in the weeks leading up to and including November 11, at the Isabel Turner branch.
