The Juno Beach Centre was pleased to welcome the “Association Bondy Devoir de Mémoire” (from Seine-saint-Denis near Paris) and 35 young winners of the challenge “Normandy Landings”. The students were awarded a day trip on the D-Day beaches including a visit of the Juno Beach Centre. They also organized a commemorative ceremony with local dignitaries and French veterans. A great intitiative and a great experience for the students who got involved with a lot of respect and gratitude.
