At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Memories of war.

Close to the town centre of Colleville-sur-Mer 9,841 soldiers are buried in the American Military Cemetery at Omaha Beach, near the locations of the Landings on 6 June 1944, as a tribute to the Allies in memory of the Second World War and the Normandy Landings.

On huge grassy mounds, rows of white crosses remind us of the courage and madness of mankind.
