Canada's Capital Marks 75 Years of Remembrance

Eye-catching exhibit shares the story of the National War Memorial

GATINEAU, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- Department of Canadian Heritage

Canadian Heritage has unveiled the 2014 Plaza Bridge Photo Exhibit. This year's exhibit commemorates the 75th Anniversary of The Response, the National War Memorial.

Eighteen large scale images-chosen to represent the development, construction, and significance of the National War Memorial-will be showcased in the heart of the nation's capital until mid-October.

Situated on the Plaza Bridge in Confederation Square, one of the Capital's busiest pedestrian corridors, this outdoor photo exhibition will offer thousands of visitors a unique portrait of Canada's formal place of commemoration and remembrance.

Quick Facts

--  British sculptor Vernon March won the 1925 international competition to
    create the National War Memorial.
--  It was officially unveiled by His Majesty King George VI on May 21,
    1939, in front of an estimated crowd of 100,000 people who gathered to
    witness the ceremony.
--  Entitled The Response, the National War Memorial is a tribute to the
    Canadians who have, since the First World War, answered the call to
    serve. It stands in Confederation Square, in the heart of downtown
    Ottawa.
--  The Plaza Bridge Photo Exhibit program was initiated in 2005 to mark the
    60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. Every year since

    anniversaries are recognized and celebrated at this location through
    photographs.
