Luminous Memento is a memorial in homage to the citizens of Poitiers died in various conflicts since the First World War.
The names of the deceased appear and pass through a translucent concrete to digitally engrave for a moment their memory in the stone. To honor the missing, every anniversary arises several times their name to commemorate beyond their death, the birth of those citizens who defended France.
A web site Luminousmemento.fr connected to the memorial allows to consult the date of passing the name of a deceased on Luminous Memento. It also includes the date of birth, date of death and for some people, the words « death for France ».
The database of the monument at the inauguration the 11th November 2016 included 2107 names.
