This memorial in the town center of Verdun was inaugurated in 1929 by French President, Gaston Doumergue. From it, there is a breathtaking view of the town. The 73 steps lead up to a hall containing lists of names of the soldiers awarded the Verdun medal.
A ceremony takes place here every year on 1 November, when the Sacred Flame is brought from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
