Vimy: A Living Memorial – The Digital Pilgrimage is a virtual space of remembrance where more than a century of testimonies co-exist, allowing us to discover the common elements that unite us in our response to conflict. The pilgrimage’s approach runs counter to our fast-paced culture of on-demand consumption and online sharing. Visitors are anchored in the present moment and can take the time to engage with selected stories while reflecting on their own relationship to war.
