The exhibition In Their Footsteps: the story of the men and women who experienced the D-Day landings on 6 June 1944.
Their names are Leonard, Thomas or Françoise, they are Canadian, British or French, soldiers or civilians and they were present in June 1944 on our Normandy beaches.
Some landed on Juno Beach, others lived on the Côte de Nacre and had been waiting for the Allies for many months; they tell us what they experienced and reveal to us the images that have remained in their memory forever… the fear, the anguish, the noise, the bloody battle, the arrival of the Canadian soldiers with their funny accent and finally the joy of being liberated.
This outdoor exhibition of cubic story booths pays tribute to the witnesses of the D-Day landings – soldiers and civilians – through their testimonies, their biographies, all illustrated with archive images.
The exhibition takes the form of a historical and memorial circuit/red thread in the communes of the Juno Beach sector and Sword Beach sector : Courseulles-sur-Mer, Bernières-sur-Mer, Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer, Langrune-sur-Mer, Luc-sur-Mer, Reviers, Douvres-la-Délivrande
The dansleurspas.com web application presents testimonies of civilians and soldiers. Free, multilingual, available 24/7.
