Musée Mémorial Omaha Beach
Omaha Beach Memorial in Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer in Normandy (7 kilometres from Queen Mathilde Campsite) was created to commemorate and out of respect for all these men who landed at Omaha Beach in Normandy. It was conceived so as to preserve the memory of all these young men who died in 1944 when they landed on D-Day and whom we must remember so that the younger generations will never forget at what cost we gained our freedom.
Musée 360° Arromanches
The SAEM Arromanches 360 in Normandy (12 kilometres from Queen Mathilde Campsite), created at the initiative of the Regional Council of Lower Normandy for the 50th Anniversary of Normandy Landings, presents an amazing film on 9 screens in a circular theatre: “The Price of Liberty”. The film is a medley of hitherto unscreened archives filmed by war correspondants in June 1944 and present-day images shot on the same sites which have been given back to peace again.
Batterie de Longues
Major construction of the Atlantic Wall coastal fortifications, the coastal artillery battery of Longues-sur-Mer in Normandy (12 kilometres from Queen Mathilde Campsite) consisted of a command post and four 152-mm navy guns, each protected by a casemate. Located at the heart of the allied assault sector, at the top of a cliff dominating the Channel, it played a strategic role during the landings of the Allied Forces on 6th June 1944.
This cemetery in Normandy (8 kilometres from Queen Mathilde Campsite) is located on a bluff overlooking Omaha Beach and covers 70 ha. It contains 9387 perfectly aligned white crosses made of Italian marble. Included are a chapel and a memorial dedicated to American youth. The Normandy Visitor Center is a center of interpretation on American land within the Norman territory and is under Mr. Barack Obama’s presidency. It celebrates the memory of the you ng people who died in 1944 on the D-Day and whom we must remember for the future generations never to forget what it cost for us to gain our liberty again.
Mémorial de Caen
The Caen Memorial in Normandy (35 kilometres from Queen Mathilde Campsite) was inaugurated on 6th June 1988 by François Mitterrand. It is the reference museum for the history of the 20th century. Building on an innovative and emotionally-charged layout, this City of History for Peace offers a journey into the past but also a reflection on what might lie ahead through three main spaces: the international tensions and the Second World War, the Cold War and the theme of Pease.
Besides its historical mission, The Caen Memorial makes every effort to show how fragile peace and the human rights and what they require.
