Civilian Life during the Battle of Normandy

 

The civilians have paid a heavy price during the Second World War… Let’s talk about this conflict through the daily life of the inhabitants of Normandy… 

 

MORNING

>Guided tour of Caen « Civilian life during the Battle of Caen » (2hrs)

During summer 1944, Caen was at the heart of the Battle of Normandy and the civilians had to survive in the middle of the bombed city. Their life was organized around one of the few safe places: the Men’s Abbey.

 

LUNCH

3-course menu + drinks in a partner restaurant

 

AFTERNOON

>Visit of the Civilians in Wartime Memorial in Falaise (3hrs)

This museum, built on the ruins of a house destroyed by the bombings of summer 1944, is a remembrance place unique in the world. Although the fate of civilians is often a point raised, never before had a museum chosen to fully dedicate its topic to the daily life of populations during an armed conflict.
