NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

The Armistice Beacon

On 11 November 2018, for the centenary of the Armistice that ended the First World War, we filled Pukeahu National War Memorial Park in Wellington with messages of hope, peace and remembrance.

We invited New Zealanders everywhere to contribute a message to the Armistice Beacon, asking them to share their thoughts about what peace means to them, what they were hopeful for, or to offer a note of remembrance. It could have been be a message of reflection on the past or an aspiration for the future.

All the Beacon messages will be archived as a record of Aotearoa’s Armistice centenary commemorations, so their words will go down in history.
