Abstract: In 1919, France is emerging from a war in which she suffered a number of casualties previously unimaginable. The State is then brought to invent new tools to deal with the trauma of war and grief that affects society. Among them, the commemoration of the Armistice of November 11, 1918 has crossed the century and persists as a major event despite the disappearance of the last veterans of the Great War. This thesis focuses on the national ceremony on November 11, held annually since 1922 in Paris. It aims first to look at the genesis of a commemoration, which was established after an intense political debate. The commemoration was organized around specific old and new rituals : the flags of the regiments disbanded and the unknown Soldier, or the minute of silence). This elements that became permanent emphasized the mournig dimension of the commemoration. Filmed from 1923 to 2012, the commemoration of November 11 has also been studied through the prism of the images broadcasted in the medias. Keywords: commemoration, publics policies of the past, Novembre 11th, rituals, newreels, television
