The City of Pilsen commemorated the Veterans Day by laying of flowers at Homolka park today.

November 11 was chosen symbolically, because on that day in 1918 a train truce between the Allies and Germany was signed in a train car in Le Francport near the northern French city of Compiègne, ending the fighting of the First World War on the Western Front. The main signatories of the armistice were the Supreme Allied Commander Marshal Ferdinand Foch and the German Deputy Matthias Erzberger.
