La « Grande Guerre » entre souvenir et oubli

Le 11 novembre 2018 a eu lieu la commémoration du centenaire de l’armistice qui a mis fin à la Première Guerre mondiale. Quelle mémoire garde-t-on aujourd’hui des événements, des victimes et des traumatismes d’une guerre qui a ravagé l’Europe de 1914 à 1918 ? De quoi se souvient-on et qu’est ce qui a été réprimé et perdu ?
