The State Archives in Arlon win ‘archives’ competition about First World War

On the occasion of the centenary of the First World War Armistice, several State Archives repositories (among which CegeSoma) have selected one document from that period of time that best symbolizes the transition from war to peace.

The public then was able to choose from these documents the one they liked most via an online form on the State Archives website and on the CegeSoma website.
