Twig Question

Set a menu item active, and keep it in memory using TWIG and Symfony

I'm having a problem using Twig because I have a vertical sidebar used as a menu. When the user clicked on the menu item, it add an active class. But when the user change of page, active page disapear. I know this is the behavior expected but that's what I'm here. I wanted to know if someone have an idea to keep this active class in my layout when the user click on this item, so that, when he change of page, the menu will be as he desired (i.e. active or not)

Here is my layout.html.twig file :

{% block head %}
<meta charset='utf-8'>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">
<meta http-equiv="x-ua-compatible" content="ie=edge">
<title>{% block title %} AcreatMailing {% endblock title %}</title>
{% block js_head %}
<script type="text/javascript" src="{{ asset('/bundles/front/components/MDBootstrap/js/jquery-3.1.1.min.js') }}"></script>
{% endblock js_head %}
{% block stylesheet %}
<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

{% endblock stylesheet %}

The sidebar is inside the {% block navbar %}.
Thanks all in advance.

I found the solution with one of my teamates. I used javascript and jquery to set cookies for the menu. And then if the cookie is set i add/remove the class for my menu. Thanks all by the way.
