The extraordinary success of the Mémorial de Caen (Caen Memorial) is down to the willpower of the man behind it, Jean-Marie Girault. The city of Caen, bombed during the summer of 1944 and martyred during the Liberation, indeed deserved a tribute that reflected the extent of the suffering inflicted upon it. This was done, but in the spirit of reconciliation that remains the main theme of the Mémorial. This spirit which makes the Mémorial de Caen so special will guide you through the various areas of the museum, on a journey to the heart of the history of the 20th century.
