Hart House Remembrance Day 2017
Remembering those who for died trying to secure peace.
Each year, the University community gathers to remember over 1,000 students, staff, and faculty who died in the First and Second World Wars. The service includes the recitation of the poem In Flanders Fields, written by University College alumnus John McCrea.
This year’s service will profile Jewish, Indigenous and Christian leadership (it rotates each year). A reception in the Great Hall of Hart House follows the service, and the Memorial Room museum in Soldiers’ Tower is open for visitors.
