“Les clochers de la liberté”, commemorating in a different way
June 6, 2020 at the Normandy Victory Museum
As a Normandy museum of the Second World War, the June 6 ceremonies are important events for us in many ways. That year, many of us were saddened to see the day arrive, with no opportunity to pay tribute to and honor our liberators. Nicholas Bellée, one of the museum’s founders, came up with the idea for this initiative, which has been widely taken up, even across the Atlantic.
