It was 100 years ago that World War I began. Millions died, making it one of the deadliest conflicts in modern history. To mark the occasion, Pope Francis announced he will visit Italy's Austro-Hungarian War Cemetery on Saturday, September 13th. It's there, that a total of 697 soldiers were laid to rest. There's also a monument to honor the fallen.
