The Fallen 9000 D-Day Tribute

Share

To commemorate the arrival of Allied forces on the beaches of Normandy 70 years ago, two English artists created a touching sand sculpture memorial. D-Day occurred on June 6th, 1944. When the troops landed on those beaches, it marked the beginning of the end for the Nazis. It was an important day in history, but lives were lost on each side.

Artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss, along with many volunteers, worked to sketch figures into the sand. They were tracing outlines of soldiers, all in memory of those who fell on D-Day.

60 volunteers along with over 500 local residents helped created this temporary tribute.
