  • Remembering Ieper

    43 views 2 days ago
    A hundred years ago, mankind saw the advent of large scale toxic chemical agents employed in warfare. With the introduction of such heinous means of warfare, the rules of engagement and ethic degradation in military conflicts among nation states changed to the worse. Though World War I was mainly confined to Europe and chemical warfare was but one facet among other military means first used, the implications reached to all continents and stretched into the succeeding century.

    The film "Remembering Ieper" was produced by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) as part of an event to mark the centenary of the first large-scale use of chemical weapons on 21 April 2015 in Ieper, Belgium.
