Cette anthologie vivante sur les mémoires de guerre a vocation à réunir les contributions de celles et ceux qui ont traversé des conflits et des guerres, y compris de « basse intensité », à travers le monde.
Les témoignages de civils ou de militaires, redevenus civils, alimentent cette anthologie, à visée pacifiste, qui se veut un espace de rencontres fertile, enrichi au fil du temps par le croisement des partages et des expériences.
Un remerciement appuyé est fait à l’ensemble des poètes et des écrivains qui ont généreusement et solidairement répondu à ce projet collaboratif où les actes de création prennent une résonnance particulière en s’entretissant, en se juxtaposant, en se répondant… créant un puzzle artistique autour des phénomènes de guerre offrant un éclairage unique pour qui s’intéresse à la construction vivante de l’Histoire.
L’Anthologie vivante sur les Mémoires de guerre accueille les propositions au fil de l’eau.
