French President Francois Hollande (L) and German President Joachim Gauck attend a ceremony at the memorial to the battles at Hartmannswillerkopf, as part of commemorations marking the centenary of World War I on August 3, 2014 near Cernay, France. The German and French armies clashed repeatedly throughout 1915 at Hartmannswillerkopf, also known as Vieil Armand and Hartmannsweiler Kopf, a strategic hill in Alsace that cost the two sides a total of over 30,000 casualties. Gauck will travel tomorrow to Belgium, where further commemorations will take place as Europe looks back at a war that cost the world tens of millions of lives. (Getty Images)
