To mark the Centenary of the Armistice, the Historial of the Great War of Péronne and FF Paris is bringing to life a collaborative digital project entitled "Le Visage Inconnu" (The Unknown Face). Regardless of their nationalities or origins, millions of human beings involved in the conflict, both men and women were victims of the horrors of the First World War. In memory of the lives shattered by war, tens of thousands of portraits were collected over several months and overlaid using an algorithm, to make up one unique face: "THE UNKNOWN FACE", human, universal. to extend the experience and share the message of peace that it embodies with the general public, a dedicated interactive platform will allow you to discover "THE UNKNOWN FACE" and some of the destinies of the men and women who marked the history of the Great War. The site aims to consolidate collective and individual memory contributions. It will be continuously updated with new portraits, modifying, following the morphing technique, The Unknown Face.
