The Menin Gate commemorates 6.928 Canadians who died in Flanders during WWI. They have no known grave, either because their remains were not recovered or because they could not be positively identified.
The Passchendaele Museum gave them a tangible place in the landscape.

For our Names in the Landscape project, we would also like the residents of Groot Zonnebeke and the surrounding area to have their say. This way, we try to keep the memory of the war alive among the local population. Between Ypres and Passchendaele, a soldier could literally have fallen in your backyard. By linking a name and story to a familiar environment, we can encourage people to approach their neighbourhood differently.
