There isn't a polite option for non-Americans. :(

Brits, and others, don't honor the end of the Second World War? (Remembrance Day in Canada or Veterans Day in the States)

Its like a war monument to unknown fallen soldiers I think. I won't be remembering it because my country was neutral though I do remember WW1 because of the numbers of my fellow countrymen who fought in it

We have 'Remembrance Sunday' on the second Sunday of November each year - for us it's the 9th this year. The Cenotaphs are visited by local dignitaries, ex-servicemen/women and cadets - or in larger cities the public as well. The rest of the population simply observes the two minutes silence. :)

A Cenotaph is not just for unknown fallen soldiers, it's generally erected when a large number of soldiers have fought a battle and suffered large amounts, although, they can be erected anywheres. @ AH -- Will you be attending the memorial to honor the 68,000+ Canadians that have fallen in the First World War? If so, I'd be interested in getting some pictures.
