Agenda 2014-18

As part of the commemorations of the World War I in Brussels, discover a set of events and exhibitions listed below :

  • Mini-Europe remembers the First World War - 13/06/2014 - 31/12/2018

  • For today's young people, memories of the war are epitomized particularly by military cemeteries which relate, in silence, the drama experienced by families on both sides. It was impossible to reproduce each of them: so Mini-Europe has opted for an original creation. Likewise for the reconstruction of the famous Christmas truce that took place at the front. As for each of the models, the management of the miniature park insisted that it should be a realistic, faithful depiction. "Remember 14-18" trail consists of three components:

    • a brief link created between 14 existing monuments at Mini-Europe and the First World War;
    • a 1/25 scale interpretation of five of the cemeteries on the battlefields of the Sambre and Yser;
    • information about the consequences of the First World War on the European Union.

  • 14-18: tribute by Australian and New Zealand artists - 25/07/2017 - 25/08/2017

  • The Australian and New Zealand experience of the First World War can never be fully comprehended by those who did not participate, so the aim of the Portfolio is to creatively explore the legacy of the war and the Centenary itself as a way of linking our past with our present and future.
