After posting the above message I came across this on a website: "200 years Battle of the Nations and 100 years Battle of the Nations Monument – In October 1813, more than half a million European soldiers were involved in the Battle of the Nations near Leipzig, and 120,000 lost their lives. The Monument to the Battle of the Nations, which was inaugurated in 1913, is today considered the biggest memorial in Europe. For the festival week in October 2013, Leipzig is inviting guests from all over the world to jointly look back on the past and forward into the future. The festival week will be opened with a festive worship service in the Russian Orthodox St. Alexy Memorial Church on 17 October 2013. This will be followed by a festival with music, dance and light shows. On 20 October 2013, 6,000 players will come together to re-enact the battle. The soldiers’ daily routines and the civilian life around 1813 will be shown, too. The Museum of City History is also referring to the anniversary, with an exhibition of national dimensions (4 September 2013 to 5 January 2014)."
However, can anyone supply more info?
