Women in war” thematic exhibition
In every country, women have rolled up their sleeves and, in addition to their domestic role, performed important tasks in industry, the fields, health care, the army, the Resistance… Women showed incomparable courage during the Second World War, yet were “sent home” as soon as the war was over. It took many years for their role to be recognized, and it is still sometimes downplayed. The Normandy Victory Museum highlights all these courageous women, from the smallest details of their daily lives to the historic destinies of some, in a permanent thematic exhibition.
