This is a place that does not seem to attract the visitors like some of the others in the area but so worth it. There are two sides to the D-Day invasions. This is a well maintained beautiful place. Somber but peaceful. The stones are all in a black granite. Reading the names and ages on the stones is incredible, the majority of the men were 18-20, so young and for so many they were only following orders. Most were not members of the SS etc, they were young and doing what they were told.
The monument in the middle up on the hill, there are statues and what struck my husband and I was that the faces on the monument were pointed north, so they would never see the light of the sun. Somehow that made me feel so very sad! Lives lost so young, so tragically and for what?
Very moving and well worth the visit
