The Christmas Truce of 1914

The Christmas Truce of 1914 refers to a series of widespread but unofficial ceasefires along the Western Front of World War I in December, 1914. In the week leading up to the 25th, French, German, and British soldiers crossed trenches to exchange seasonal greetings and talk. In some areas, men from both sides ventured into no man’s land to mingle and exchange food and souvenirs. These unofficial truces are often seen as a symbolic moment of peace and humanity amidst one of the most violent events of human history.

Special thanks to Sainsbury’s and The Royal British Legion.

Thank you for sharing this video was full of peace. It is too sweet i get a feeling in my stomache. I watched it twice. I’m sorry if i miss spell any words and make you confused. Thank you God for letting there be no war but peace, i couldve cried but it was acted out. So there was no war. It could be based on a true story. But if they were really mad at eachother, the person who came up onto the surface would have been shot brutally. My cats were watching most likely wanting to look away.… Read more »
