Just outside the Battle of Normandy Museum, this quiet grassy path has marble monuments inscribed with the names of the reporters that have died doing their job of reporting. It is a grim reminder of the price paid for their dedication.

The monuments ercted in the name of reporters killed/died in action was very evocative. Thie place is close to the Battle museum and the British cemetery. The grounds could be slightly better maintained. There are a few places to sit and pondr about the famous and not so famous names inscribed into the pillars on which each year is engraved... More

Tells a little known bit of history. Suffers a bit, given the proximity to the memorials to epic sacrifices (British Museum, Battle of Normandy Museum). If you know a journalist, or have an interest in this subject, it could make your trip.

A must visit to this Memorial (along the British Cemetery, as one other reviewer mentioned). Quiet (and very well-tended) park, well-spaced stone columns bearing the names of reporters (from all countries) killed in the course of their duty. A place where one can meditate in peace, and reflect on the ever present barbarians...

This memorial is located adjacent to the Battle of Normandy museum and across the street from the British cemetery. It is a memorial to the reporters who have lost their lives in war torn regions of the world over the past several decades. It stresses the fact that reporters have a dangerous job.

A dignified memorial to the reporters who loose their lives each year. Each name written on white stone tablets throughout grassy woodland paths. Thought provoking.

A lovely garden, grass path and the memorials are stone columns with the names of every reporter killed each year - 1979 being the only one that ha no name. We went Remembrance Sunday and James Foley's name is sadly already engraved on the column. Horrifyingly, some years have more than one column of names. Vive the City of Bayeux... More

This memorial was a revelation, the ability to pay homage to the named reporters through the decades of conflicts who had paid with their life for following their profession. Beautifully laid out memorial setting

Not much to see but names on pillars. Sad testimony to our increasing MURDER of reporters. When will we learn and how will be do so if we kill the witnesses.
