The Peace Tower dominates Parliament Hill , rising over 90 meters (300 feet) into the sky above Ottawa. Dedicated to the men and women killed in World War I, the Peace Tower houses the Memorial Chamber; the Book of Remembrance at its center contains the names of the 66,650 Canadians killed in the Great War. Each day the book is turned to a different page. Other books around the chamber list the names of Canadians who lost their lives in other conflicts. At the heart of the Peace Tower is a 63-bell carillon. The largest bell weighs over 10,000 kilograms (ten tons), while the smallest is only four. Visitors to the Peace Tower can take a peak at the carillon as they take an elevator to the Tower's observation deck located just below the huge clock face.
