THE HISTORICAL BLOG
Did you know ? The Normandy Victory Museum is located on a former historically known American military aerodrome: the A10 Airfield. It is still in operation and small aircraft can still use its shortened runway, 400 meters long.
In 1939, when men were mobilized, women were on all fronts. They are found in domestic tasks as usual but also in the production of weapons, mechanics, fields, in hospitals, in the resistance and in battles. This exhibition pays tribute to them and highlights their sometimes overlooked actions.

In this strange year 2020, the ceremonies of June 6 almost failed to take place. So yes, they will be different, and they will be fewer, but for a large number of us, it was impossible not to pay tribute to all those men and women who fought for this Freedom, especially in this year 2020 , we measure the immense value. On June 6, join us on the A10 Airfield for an outdoor cinema session (Drive In) in a 1950s atmosphere
This year, it is with sadness that many of us saw this day coming without the possibility of paying homage and honoring our liberators. One of these people, Nicholas Bellée, one of the founders of the museum, had the idea for this initiative.
