Overview
-

Artifacts are tangible objects to our past with each of them telling its own story. What can we learn from the various objects which were used during the D-Day Landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944? What is the significance of the dummy tanks used to confuse German reconnaissance planes? How did the use of aluminum foil help to make the landings a success? 101 carefully selected artifacts tell the story of the day that changed history. Each object will be explained by historians, curators, and even visitors admiring these objects in various museums, thus giving the objects a personal dimension.
