In the main page of your link:
"Do you have a story or anecdote to tell about those involved or affected?"
If they are asking for anecdotes, I am wondering how much they care for really sad stories, that made 99.9% of WWI.

Anecdotes are not jokes. The difference is that a "joke" is an "amusing story" that does not have to be true whereas an "anecdote" has to be true. An example of an anecdote would be the story of, for example, when Mitt Romney asked "why windows do not open on a plane". There are plenty of true yet amusing stories in history like the time when...(insert funny but true story here).
The word comes from Greek and means something like "tale you haven't heard before". It is the basis of journalism.
