"It can really said that the whole world is surrounded by the graves of our fallen. I am convinced that in the upcoming years there will not be peacemakers on earth more convincing than this multitude of silent witnesses of the desolation caused by wars" King George V of England, 1922War memorial pone themselves between history and memory, where we can find the remark spirit of nation and identity. They both represent isolation and celebration; transcend the political contingencies they think at the past looking to the future The grandeur of their construction celebrates Nations and the Memory; the mixing of thousands of names puts all men on the same step but memory and the sacrifice are above the specific individual; The individuals "together" are true greatness.
