A Question My Son Asked Me.

Recommended Posts

Last weekend my boy, who is 13, said "Dad, do the Germans celebrate Armistice Day?"

I said "I don't know, but I doubt it".

But I thought "What an intelligent question" and I wonder if anyone knows if Germany does mark it in any way, or if it has any other day in which it marks their own soldiers and/or civilians who died in the conflict?

No idea - however they seem to like Last Night of the Proms. Always a few Deutsch flags around.

No they don't, no more than the British celebrate American Independence Day. November 11th is better known as the start of Karneval in Germany.

They do, however, have a remembrance day for all the victims of the Nazis (Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, mentally handicapped, etc.) on 27 January, when flags are flown at half-mast on public buildings.
