Such a beautiful place! Can you image, that so many young people died on this place, that this photo is taken at the border of a cemetery? We live in a crazy world. Sometimes I doubt if human beings are decorated with human sense.
Normandia ( France)

Absolutely large on black
The start of the long beach. On this 6 km long beach, the Allied forces faced fierce resistance from the German army and the landing almost failed.
4.700 Peoples were killed during the landing and the beach was nicknamed "Bloody Omaha"
Machine gun nests were placed at the top of the cliffs an dunes for the soldiers to mow down.

On an early June morning with a misty light fog that will soon burn off, you can envision the area as it was in 1944 at low tide, the sea
walls to the right far from the sea waters, but if you've been there many times, you've probably seen the sea at high tide surging over the beaches and sometimes, over the sea wall and onto the road behind the beaches. We've visited Normandy many times. It is a beautiful region with wonderful people whose famlies suffered terrible losses in 1944 from bombings. We first went to the invasion beaches nearly 50 years ago - War tourism had not become so popular - I remember mostly middle aged British vets of the beaches, some Canadians.
