The Week of Remembrance draws to a close: thousands of visitors from across all of Europe commemorated the Battle of the Nations near Leipzig of 1813 and the inauguration of the Monument in 1913

With the premier of the commissioned work of the City of Leipzig “European Peace Music 2013“ in the Monument to the Battle of the Nations and the subsequent “Cosmogole” light installation, the Week of Remembrance was drawn to a contemplative close on the evening of the 20th October. Among the highlights are the Official Ceremony on 18 October with 450 invited international representatives and the subsequent symbolic handing over of the restored Monument to the Battle of the Nations to the public.
