The article discusses one of the areas of commemorative practices - memory tourism and the practice of using it as a teaching technology for modern French students. Memory tourism in recent decades became popular in many European countries. As for France, according to the Direction of the Centenary Mission of the Great War, France “had the sad privilege of becoming the main battleground of the First World War,”, therefore the 2014 anniversary stimulated the development of tourist routes associated with the sites of memory of the Great War. Despite the fact that “memory tourism” plays a significant role in the development of the local economies of France, recently its potential has been widely used in the field of education. Thus, the Directorate of Heritage, Memory and Archives, which is part of the French Ministry of Defense, initiated the development of “educational memory tourism”, creating tourist routes for pupils and students, encouraging the younger generation with educational trips and awards for their contribution to the digital equipment of tourist routes and museum expositions. The author comes to the conclusion that today an official, national-patriotic view of the events of the First World War dominates in the field of educational tourism, since there are virtually no alternative commemorations involving tourist routes.
