The Christmas truce of 1914

On january 30, we celebrate the School-day of non violence and peace. 

More than a hundred years ago, Europe was inmerse in one of the most devastating conflicts of human history: the First World War. Thousands and thousands of European soldiers died in the trenches, far away from home.

In Christmas of 1914, a small miracle happened: French, German and British soldiers stopped the war, exchanged food and souvenirs and sung carols. There was even a football game between soldiers. Unfortunately, after Christmas the nonsense of war continued.
