Normandy’s Channel coast is word-famous for the part it played on 6th june 1944, when Allied troops broke through Nazi defences to change the course of World War II. The allies launched simultaneous landings of US, British, Canadian and French forces on five separatebeaches codenamed Sword, Juno, Gold, Omaha and Utah. Still Today Normandy Welcomes World !
Every year in June, Normandy pays tribute to the Liberating Allies by organizing national, binational and international ceremonies on the territory of the D-Day landing beaches.
Their memory lives on : in 2019, all eyes will be on the D-Day Landings Beaches and the sites of the Battle of Normandy. The 75th anniversary will be commemorated with events and festivities such as parades, firework displays, air shows and military re-enactments. For the first time, the great international Allied ceremony will take place in the Canadian sector, on Juno Beach
