Somme Battlefields
for Peace

Somme Battlefields for Peace is addressed to visitors of the Somme battlefields. Here, history speaks to us, and it’s up to us to learn from it.

1 July marked the start of the Battle of the Somme, one of the deadliest and most destructive battles of the First World War, which claimed more than a million victims.

More than 100 years after the end of the Great War, many conflicts still ravage our world. Bruised by the First World War, the Somme region cannot remain inactive in the face of these conflicts.

I remember, I act !

An innovative initiative

With this in mind, Somme Tourisme wants to mobilise its remembrance tourism activities to initiate a solidarity movement for the benefit of countries affected by the current fighting. The memory of the Great War in the Somme,’ emphasises François Bergez, director of Somme Tourisme, ’must serve a humanitarian and solidarity-based cause, so that we never forget and help to alleviate the suffering in countries at war today.
