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

The Canadian role in the war.

The second of the three invasion zones allotted to the Commonwealth Forces, the Canadians disembarked at Juno Beach on June 6th, 1944. Like the Americans at Omaha Beach, the Canadians landings were delayed, allowing German soldiers time to organise their defence. Of the 306 vessels, only 90 were able to reach Juno Beach.

Juno Beach, with 1,074 dead soldiers, marked the greatest losses suffered by the Commonwealth forces of the three beaches where they landed.

The Juno Beach Centre located at Juno Beach traces the role played by Canadian allies during the Normandy landings and in the Second World War.
