The Memorial


The Memorial : an encounter with history

So much more than a museum, the Caen Memorial is an encounter with history. From the start of World War II to the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Memorial retraces the major wars and conflicts, their scars and indelible remnants, poignant witnesses to the fragility of our worlds. From the world before to the world after, the memorial is moving, troubling, informative, defining itself as a site devoted to our collective memory. Here, Victor Hugo’s words reverberate: “Freedom begins where it ends ignorance.” Not to be missed.
