Macron and Steinmeier recall the end of the war 100 years ago

Strasbourg (AP) – French President Emmanuel Macron has his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Sunday evening to a concert in Strasbourg Cathedral received.

The meeting marked the beginning of a series of commemoration events in France at the end of the First World War 100 years ago. According to Élysépalast, works by Ludwig van Beethoven and Claude Debussy were part of the program for the Concert for Peace in Europe.

Paris also used the event as an opportunity to commemorate the return of Alsace-Lorraine to France 100 years ago. After the armistice of November 11, 1918 German troops had evacuated occupied areas – and Alsace-Lorraine, which belonged to the German Reich since 1871.

After the stage in Strasbourg will Macron embark on a multi-day trip in eleven départements to visit a distinctive World War I trilogy, including Verdun or Reims. At the same time, the 40-year-old, who has slipped off in polls, wants to get in touch with the French again, wrote the daily newspaper "Le Monde".
