2 Minutes to Remember

The Historica-Dominion Institute <> combined forces in the fall of this year, and their new website is now up-and-running, so I decided to take a look.

I found, basically, the same site as before (they have just combined the content), but they have added a new wrinkle this Remembrance Day - and that is "2 Minutes To Remember" on November 11 at 11 o'clock.

You can sign up on the site (so far, relatively few Canadians have done so). It is a good thing to do if you cannot go out to Remembrance Day ceremonies, and wish to pay respects at home, work, or school.

They still have "The Memory Project: Stories of the Second World War", where you can browse the stories or submit a story. They walk you through the process.

And in the "Ontario Veteran Community Archive", I see where they have plans to visit towns and cities in Ontario this winter in order to hold digitization workshops for the stories.
