D-Day Memorial at the Normandy Beaches

While the Normandy beaches have been cleaned and World War II Bunkers removed, this memorial stands in testament to the heroic acts and lives lost at the Invasion of Normandy, which began on June 6, 1944.

France had an extremely difficult time convicing people to return to this region following the War. Bombs still occasionally show up in the many fields which are near the beaches.

Scuptor Anilore Banon created this sculpture to honor the courage of the men who endangered and often sacrificed their lives in the hope of freeing the French people. "On June 6, 1945 these men were more than soldiers, they were our brothers."
