Defining Moments Canada

Defining Moments Canada/Moments Déterminants Canada, a heritage education organization, announced today its partnership with the Juno Beach Centre Association to lead the 2019 national commemorative project to share the stories of Canadians’ contributions to the D-day landings.

Juno75: Above and Beyond will spotlight the stories of 20 Canadians from across the country who were involved in the war effort in Normandy and beyond. Drawing from the extensive interview archive of Testaments of Honour, and hosted on the Defining Moments Canadawebsite, the goal of this national commemorative project is to inspire young Canadians to discover the lives of those who participated in one of Canada’s best-known battles. Beyond the stories of those veterans who landed on Juno Beach, the project also seeks to commemorate those who continued to serve in the Battle of Normandy, and those whose contributions on the home front were essential to driving the war effort – and the country – along.
