Faces to Names tells the stories of the men and women listed on cenotaphs across Canada and is inspired by the Dutch foundation, Faces to Graves. Launched in Guelph on November 1st, Faces to Names: 2020 honours the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and The Dutch Liberation. The commemoration highlights the 28 Guelph soldiers who helped liberate the Dutch, and are buried in the Netherlands. The soldiers' photos are on display in front of the Cenotaph's Wall of Honour. By scanning the QR code on the display, you can access the Canadian Remembrance Torch website where you'll find the soldiers' biographies and, in some cases, videos created by their relatives. There is also a searchable street map so you can find the streets where the soldiers lived and the streets that have been named after them. The display will be at the Cenotaph until mid November, then at Stone Rd. Mall and the University of Guelph.
