On tour ! – Normandy

In cooperation with numerous hiking associations in our partner countries, the LREF has established a network of hiking specialists and historians in order to develop a trail stretching from London to Berlin. As part of Europe Remembers’ promotional activities, we will walk along the commemorative route that the Allies took in 1944 and 1945, to actively bring it to the attention of the public. Interviews will be held with veterans, young people, politicians, historians and prominent figures of society, who will walk part of the Liberation Route with us. The second leg of this “On Tour!” initiative will take place in Normandy, France, starting at Utah Beach (Sainte-Marie-du-Mont) on June 3rd and ending in Lion-sur-mer on June 6th.

You can follow our journey and special live events on our social media accounts (@EuropeRemembers on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) and by following the #EuropeRemembers.
