LIFESTYLE History

The idea of honoring the memories of all soldiers killed in conflict with a single tomb containing one unidentified combatant has its genesis in the First World War. On November 11, 1920, the first Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was dedicated in London. Across the Channel on the same day, a second memorial was unveiled in Paris. The following year, the United States dedicated its Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington, Virginia. The idea of a symbolic Tomb of the Unknown Soldier then spread to other countries to remind us of the ultimate sacrifice made by others on the battlefield.
