Reenactment Video

Just before we start our week of Remembrance we are ready to share the video of our last reenactment. Our amazing volunteer, cameraman and video editor Gerrit deWaal just uploaded this great video.

The last reenactment featured a night raid and touched on the suffering of the many people who were displaced during the Great War.
