THEME 1: LIVING HISTORY



‘Living history’

The terms ‘re-enacting’ and ‘Living History’ are often bracketed together. In essence, `re-enacting´ is focused on staging particular actions such as the well-known evocation of the Battle of Waterloo. With `Living History´ the society of the time is acted out with more emphasis on daily live than on the extraordinary. In general, military evocations gain a great deal of interest both from devotees as well as from the general public. Very often these evocations resemble re-enacting and differ in quality. ‘Living history’ focused on military themes is a recent development and originates from the Anglo-Saxon countries. Since 2004, the city of Zonnebeke has been a pioneer in Flanders.

Both ‘re-enacting’ and ‘living history’ are important parts of Heritage Day on Sunday April 25 with the theme `Fake?’. Can they teach history to the public or do they deviate too much from reality? What are the objectives and reasons for resurrecting the past? What is the perceptual value for the spectator? What is the attraction of such event? Is it possible to experience all this?


Historical evocation: ‘The war behind the front’

On Saturday April 24 and Sunday April 25 you can discover Europe’s greatest World War I evocation. For two days the chateau grounds will be transformed into a `war behind the front’ scene. You can visit a camp, a border crossing-point, a field hospital, as well as the home front, the recruitment office, the food shortage, the troops’ fair and a charity for the men at the Front. The Russian Revolution and the German soldier councils of 1918 are another story. For this evocation, more than 150 re-enactors from seven different countries will literally pitch their tents in Zonnebeke’s chateau grounds. A unique historical event!


Conference: ‘Living history’

For the first time in Flanders, a conference concerning the use of ‘Living history’ will be organized on Saturday April 24. What does it teach and when can you use it? ‘Hands-on’ experts and educational assistants from Flemish museums working with `living history´, will tell their stories. Foreign specialists will place this in an international context. And, of course, a visit to the ‘Living History’ event is included. The symposium will take place in the council chamber at the Zonnebeke Town Hall from 9.30 till 17.00. Participation: €12.50 p.p. including lunch and coffee.


Attic treasures

Everyone of us probably has hidden treasure in the attic – items we don’t know the meaning of, whether they are fake or real, or whether they have any value. On Sunday April 25, a number of antiques experts will identify and value your family heirlooms. Participation is free of charge, but for practical reasons it is asked that a maximum of five items a person is observed.





THEME 2: COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES COMMISSION



Commonwealth War Graves Commission

The landscape of the Westhoek is covered with military cemeteries, silent and humble witnesses to the human cost of the Great War. These cemeteries – and the tens of thousands of graves they contain – are maintained with great respect by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. It is a name which is unknown to many, except perhaps by historians and lovers of military history. But what does this organisation do exactly?



The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is a non-profit-making organisation which was founded by Royal Charter in 1917 thanks largely to the inspiration of Sir Fabian Ware, its first vice-chairman. The Commission’s task is to honour and perpetuate the memory of the more than 1,700,000 men and women of the Commonwealth who lost their lives during the two world wars.


The Commission not only maintains the graves of the fallen, but was also responsible for the creation of the war cemeteries into which these graves were gathered, and for the construction of memorials to the missing – such as the famous Menin Gate in Ieper. In total, the Commission cares for graves at more than 23,000 different locations in no fewer than 150 countries. The largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world is located in Zonnebeke: Tyne Cot Cemetery, with over 11,000 burials.



But there is more to the Commission than the simple maintenance of cemeteries and memorials. The CWGC also has at its disposal – and at the disposal of the public – a database which contains details of all Commonwealth military casualties from both world wars (but not from other conflicts) which can be accessed at www.cwgc.org. The CWGC also plays a major role in continued remembrance of the fallen by maintaining the fabric upon which remembrance of the dead is focused as well as through information and education initiatives.


The Commission is an organization with a long and distinguished history, whose fine tradition of caring for the Commonwealth’s war dead was started while the fighting on the battlefields of the Western Front was still going on...


Exhibition: ‘Remember me: The Commonwealth War Graves Commission 1917-2010’

The exhibition takes a look behind the scenes of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and hopes to shed light on the many different roles played by this remarkable organisation. What is the Commission? Who works for it? What tasks do they perform? What part has it played in the commemoration of the war dead since its foundation in 1917? Using a series of unique original documents, photographs and artefacts from the Commission’s Head Office in Maidenhead, UK, many of which have never been displayed in public before, it is hoped for the very first time in Flanders to give visitors a new insight into the work of this fascinating organisation. The various displays chart the evolution of the technical and organisational developments associated with the Commission’s core tasks of maintaining war graves all over the world and the role this organisation and the people who work for it play in ensuring we never forget those who died in the two world wars. Remember Me will be officially opened at 2000 hours on Friday, 23 April 2010 (attendance by invitation only). Thereafter, the exhibition will be open to the public at het Passchendaele 1917 Memorial Museum until November 2010.


Battlefield tour

In conjunction with the annual exhibition showing the history and operations of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, you are able to take a guided bus tour of lesser known and seldom visited sites. We have arranged a visit to Compost Farm based at Bedford House Cemetery. Guests will be able to see the farm in operation and listen to commentary from a Senior Horticulture Manager. There is also a visit to Eton College in Ypres and other unknown sites. The tour starts at 13.00 hours departing from the Chateau grounds and costs €10.00 p.p., including transport, a drink and a visit to the exhibition in the Museum. (By reservation only, restricted number of participants)




THEME 3: ANZAC DAY



ANZAC Day – 25th April 2010

On Sunday April 25 it is exactly 95 years ago that the ‘Australian and New Zealand Army Corps’ (ANZAC) entered the First World War with the Gallipoli landing. On this symbolic day, ‘ANZAC Day’, the efforts of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps are remembered yearly all over the world. Because of their bloody participation in the ‘Battle for Passchendaele’, several important commemorations take place here. This year ‘ANZAC Day’ is on the same Sunday as Heritage Day and the Museum Weekend.


Concert

On Saturday evening, a special commemorative concert will take place in a large marquee in the Zonnebeke Chateau grounds. The programme includes the New Zealand coloratura soprano Carleen Ebbs, the New Zealand pianist Heather Charlton and the Australian flautist Wendy Quinlan. Carleen Ebbs is a prize-winning operatic soprano currently at the International Academy of the Voice in Cardiff. The pianist Heather Charlton lives in Belgium and is a well-known organist and harpsichordist. Wendy Quinlan also lives in Belgium and has been principal flute with the World Youth Orchestra, the Basel Symphony Orchestra, the Orquestra do Porto, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the ‘Nieuw Vlaams Symfonieorkest’. On April 24 they will be performing together with the ‘Royal St Cecilia Harmony’ of Beselare. The concert starts at 20.00 and is limited to 400 seats. Tickets cost €5.00 in advance and (if still available) €7.50 at the door.


ANZAC Day Dawn Service

Sunday sees an early start with a Dawn Service for the fallen Australian and New Zealand soldiers. The service starts at 6.00 am at Buttes New British Cemetery (Polygon Wood). From 5.15 am, the shuttle services depart from the parking lot of the Chateau grounds. Afterwards, breakfast is offered as well as a guided visit to the new exhibition. From 9.00 am the official Australian delegations are welcomed. Free of charge but registration required.


Field Service anno 1917

As usual, there will be an ecumenical field service on Sunday morning in the Chateau grounds. The service starts at 10.00 am. Afterwards tea, rum and tommy cake will be served.
