"Les Braves"

 

Les Braves is a war memorial that is located on the shores of Omaha Beach in the village of St. Laurent-sur-Mer in Normandy, France and commemorates the fallen American soldiers, of World War ll who have lost their lives on the beaches of Normandy, June 6th 1944.

  

The memorial represents three elements: The Wings of Hope, Rise Freedom, and the Wings Of Fraternity. French sculptor Anilore Banon, created the monument in 2004, commissioned by the French government to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion Of Normandy. In the center, there are seven stainless steel columns and a group of five columns that curve upwards, two columns stand upright, with the tallest reaching 30 feet. Stainless steel wings gracefully stand on both sides.

  

Intended only as a temporary art piece, the sculpture still stands on the shores of Omaha Beach widely due to public interest and petition. The sculpture has been described as a blend of art and nature and has been able to withstand the forces of nature surprisingly well.

Les Braves

Sculpteur: Anilore Banon

 

"Les Braves" consists of three elements:

 

The Wings of Hope

So that the spirit that carried these men on June 6th 1944 continues to inspire us, reminding us that together it's always possible to change the future

 

Rise, Freedom!

So that the example of those who rose against barbarity, helps us remain strong against all forms of inhumanity.

 

The Wings of Fraternity

So that this surge of brotherhood always reminds us of our responsibility towards others as well as ourselves. On June 6th, 1944 these men were more than soldiers, they were our brothers.

 

To remember the soldiers who lost their lives on this beach during the d-day landings Anilore Banon was commissioned to create a sculpture. This sculpture "Les Braves" is split into three elements, "The Wings of Hope", "Rise of Freedom" and "The Wings of Fraternity".

Les BRAVES du sculpteur Anilore BANON représentent sur la plage d'OMAHA BEACH 3 sculptures:

- Ailes de l'espoir,

- Debout la Liberté,

- Les Ailes de la Fraternité

en hommage à ceux qui ont débarqué sur cette plage en juin 1944

Anilore BANON, sculpteur, a réalisé un ensemble de 3 sculptures monumentales intitulées "LES BRAVES" avec "Debout la liberté" encadrée par "Les ailes de l'espoir" et par "Les ailes de la fraternité" mises en place sur le sable d'Omaha à St Laurent/Mer pour le 6 juin 2004.

  

Le titre de l'oeuvre, "Les braves", évoque le débarquement au travers du courage de ces hommes venus nous libérer en nous apportant liberté et espoir mais aussi des valeurs fortes comme la tolérance, la démocratie, l'indépendance, la fraternité entre les hommes et les peuples. Cette liberté retrouvée se manifeste par la symbolique de cette oeuvre, implantée dans le sable d'Omaha, là où le 6 juin 1944 près de 35.000 hommes ont débarqué au péril de leur vie.

N'oublions jamais les 3000 morts, disparus ou blessés au soir du 6 juin 1944 tombés sur cette plage.

L'opera dell'artista Anilore Banon si erge sulla sabbia di Omaha Beach: ricorda il coraggio delle ondate statunitensi che sbarcarono contro l'acciaio e il cemento armato dell'Atlantikwall (Vallo Atlantico).

Inchiodati per ore sulla battigia dal fuoco nemico, i soldati vennero esortati dal colonnello George A. Taylor: «Qui ci sono due tipi di individui, i morti e quelli che moriranno. Allora andiamocene via da qui!».

La presa di cinque chilometri di spiaggia costò la morte di 3.000 uomini e di altrettanti feriti e dispersi tra le onde del mare.

L’œuvre Les Braves, du sculpteur Anilore Banon, est érigée sur la plage d’Omaha Beach de Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer depuis 2004. Elle a été inaugurée le 5 juin 2004, à la veille du 60ème anniversaire du débarquement de Normandie. Cette œuvre, initialement installée temporairement car édifiée sur le domaine public maritime, est toujours « debout » car bénéficie d’un arrêté préfectoral autorisant son maintien, suite à la pétition « Il faut sauver les Braves ! ».

« L’œuvre Les Braves est constituée de trois éléments :

Les Ailes de l'Espoir

Pour que le souffre qui a porté ces hommes le 6 juin 1944

Continue de nous inspirer en nous rappelant qu'ensemble,

Il est toujours possible de changer l'avenir.

Debout la liberté

Pour que l'exemple de ceux qui se sont dressé contre la barbarie

nous aide à nous tenir debout face à toutes les formes d'inhumanité

Les Ailes de la Fraternité

Pour que cet élan de fraternité nous rappelle toujours notre responsabilité

envers l'autre comme envers nous-même.
