Stumbled upon this garden of remembrance while visiting the D Day museum, strolled around and was moved by the number of names of reporters commemorated there.

So many people fail to even pop into this wonderful memorial, even though droves go to the museum round the corner.
It is poignant to see how many reporters died doing their job. What a brilliant way to remember them through this walkway of pillars. Each with a year on and a list of reporters underneath. As one would expect in WW2 there were many on those years. But other years right up until present day, some years made me stand and try and work out why so many died until,you realise how many different conflicts there have been since WW2

This sober reminder that members of the press are often put in harm's way to report the news is fittingly placed near the Museum of the Battle of Normandy. In addition to the reporters lost during WWII, there are markers leading up to today's conflicts. The pillars, engraved with the year and the reporter's name and country, are in a lovely green space. Visitors should take the time between the museum and visiting the British War Cemetery to honor who gave their lives that we might know the facts of a conflict.

No one else was looking around.

Good reminder that the Freedom of the Press is a freedom that costs many lives. Beautiful gardens. Worth the short stroll from the WWII museum across the street.

I didn’t realize this memorial was here or even exactly what it was until I was in the middle of it. I walked across the street from the Battle of Normandy museum and didn’t pay attention to the sign. It was striking to see so many names across so many years. It was very sad to think of the stones yet to be put in place and the names that will be engraved on them.

Memorials are all in chronological order and takes about 10 minutes or so to go through. Very beautiful garden area and nice to see some took the time to go erect these monuments.

It is a fitting tribute to the reporters who lost their lives working in war zones. It is arranged in the year order and it is an eye-opener to the risk reporters put themselves in. It is a fitting tribute and very emotional. It is a good time for reflection.

The memorial garden for war correspondents is tasteful and respectful. I wish there was some kind of visitors' center with biographical data on those memorialized. Worth a visit.

Truly thought provoking memorial to those war correspondents killed whilst letting the world know. Each year seems to have greater and greater numbers killed, but I suspect this may be because of better information. 1954 records Robert Capa who was on the beaches on D-Day with his camera.
