Tribute to the fallen

Yesterday took place the commemoration of the signing of the cease-fire between France and its old colony Algeria. This eight years long war caused huge losses in human lives and certainly influenced heavily the existence of the ones that survived. This picture shows a veteran lost in his memories walking away from the ceremony that occurred under the Arch of Triumph where the grave of the Unknown soldier is located.
