The Internet Memorial Hall - A New and Contemporary way to Honor Deceased Loved Ones



ZURICH, Switzerland, May 17 /CNW/ -- ZURICH, Switzerland, May 17 /CNW/ - The new website www.memorial-hall.com offers people around the world an opportunity to publish lasting obituaries intended, literally, for the global village. On pages called "Parks," The Internet Memorial Hall provides large-format images of natural landscapes, cities and towns, and landmarks in which relatives or friends can create memorials for deceased loved ones or respected mentors. Each memorial consists of a biographical text and a photograph that can be viewed by anyone who visits the park.

The Internet Memorial Hall reflects the waning social significance of traditional cemeteries - at least in urban environments - as a place of solemn reflection and reminiscence. The mobility phenomenon makes it nearly impossible for many people to visit the final resting places of their deceased friends and relatives. And with increasing globalization, the members of even tightly-knit families are often dispersed around the world and have their own communities of friends and acquaintances. It has become very difficult for survivors to notify all the individuals who belong to these inner circles that someone they loved and respected has passed away.

But through The Internet Memorial Hall, family members and friends can preserve fond memories of the deceased in a new way. The Internet overcomes distances and brings together those who mourn, no matter where they are located. A memorial at www.memorial-hall.com can be viewed from anywhere in the world. From this perspective, it can have a similarly consoling function as the tombstone in the village cemetery at which mourners once assembled in quiet remembrance and shared their grief.
