The untold WWII stories of the men, women, and children of Normandy, France, who lived through German occupation, the D-Day invasion, and the liberation by Allied forces — and their effort to “never forget.”
This story begins in Normandy, France, where Dany Patrix and other survivors of the D-Day invasion share personal reflections and untold stories of living under German occupation and being liberated by Allied forces in World War II.
We follow Dany from her first interaction with an American soldier on D-Day, to her current experiences of thanking World War II veterans and their modern-day replacements.
