National Tribulation Day in Germany (13/11)

National Day of Sorrow (German: Volkstrauertag) is a national day of remembrance in Germany. It is celebrated in mid-November and currently serves as a reminder of the need for reconciliation, understanding and peace. The history of this day is not simple and ambiguous.

The day was established by the German People's Society for the Care of War Graves in 1919 to commemorate the almost 2 million dead and missing during the First World War.

"Unprescribed" grief was the motive of this day, a sign of solidarity of those who lost no one and who had no one to mourn, with the relatives of the dead and missing.
