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

Code name: Gold Beach.

The first of the three invasion zones allocated to British troops during the Normandy landings in World War II, Gold Beach saw the disembarkation of the 50th Northumbrian Division under General Graham on the morning of June 6th, 1944.

By evening, 25,000 enemy soldiers were killed by British troops, who now controlled a 10km x 10km perimeter reaching the outskirts of Bayeux and on the road to Caen.
The old bunkers and the America Gold Beach Museum serve to commemorate this milestone at the end of World War II.
