Documentary projection of The Girl Who Wore Freedom at the Utah Beach Museum.
One little girl’s story exemplifies the bravery and heroism exhibited in those early days of June 1944 and clearly shows why the United States takes part in protecting and liberating any who are oppressed. Her name is Dany Patrix, and she was The Girl Who Wore Freedom. The dress she was wearing in 1945 is exhibited in the Utah Beach Museum.

The Utah Beach Landings Museum is situated on the site of a former German strongpoint that was crushed by the U.S. assault force on Utah Beach in the morning of D-Day, 6 June 1944. Among a lot of war related items, this museum features a rare Martin B 26 ‘Marauder’, an American medium-size bomber.
Utah Beach was the codename of D-Day’s westernmost landing beach. Here the U.S. 4th Infantry Division came ashore. The Utah Beach landing was quite successful, partially thanks to the Airborne troops who prevented any significant counterattacks against the landing area.
