1914 —1918

A great emotional moment...
Three teenagers: A Belgian, a Frenchman and a German, all descendants of the 14-18 combatants, now find themselves in Verdun to participate in a show about the Battle of Verdun. Through their intertwined destinies and with the aid of 250 actors on stage, you will attend an unstoppable chain of events that will lead to the First World War. Right in the heart of the fighting, dive in with them into the "Verdun Inferno" and its everyday suffering and anguish.

Whether in the French or German trenches, the soldiers suffer the same fate: the cold, the mud, the lice and rats... sometimes with but a short break, the often futile nights haunted by bitter fighting.

Then we witness the drama of the civilians being evacuated and never again finding their village. And finally, the immense joy of the armistice: the happiness of regaine.

Then come the post-war years: The opening of the Douaumont Ossuary, the 1936 peace pact on the 20th anniversary of the Battle of Verdun; the pilgrimage of the last hairy.
The show ends with a handshake between the two French and German soldiers. The enemies of yesterday are the friends of today.
