During the summer of 1944, Caen, the martyred city of the Liberation, was bombarded massively by the Allied armies. To pay homage to the suffering endured then, so as never to forget, here is the objective of this moving place of Norman memory. A visit to the Caen Memorial will allow you to trace the history of the 20th century from the Second World War until the fall of the Berlin Wall, to discover the daily life of its heroes, its victims and its executioners.
The museum complex integrates several sections: one is devoted to the Second World War in general, the second focused on the Allied landing and the Battle of Normandy. The third section deciphers the unstable geopolitical balances characteristic of the Cold War.
