"The Mission of the Centenary" is a rich and diverse collection of French primary sources concerning the First World War, assembled by a public commission charged with presenting the the anniversary to the public. Created in 2012 by the French government and under the supervision of the Secretary of State for Veterans and Memory, its mission is to facilitate commemorations of the war, which it does in partnership with a broad range of museums and institutions across France. The site is available in French, English, and German, and its exhibits present materials in each language. The largest number and richest collections of primary sources are located in the French–language section of the site. The following seven ministries contributed to the website: Foreign Affairs, Army, Culture and Communication, Interior, Research and Higher Education, Tourism, as well as six public institutions and two national associations.
