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

Between Omaha Beach and Utah Beach.

In the early morning of June 6, 1944, the Pointe du Hoc was stormed by Colonel Rudder's rangers, during Operation Overlord.

At this point, the German soldiers had set up fortifications on the edge of the cliffs which reach a height of almost 30m.

During your visit to the Pointe du Hoc, you will find an artillery battery, a sniper post, bunkers and shelters dating back to the Normandy landings, a key chapter in the end of World War II.

Many information boards are dotted around the site, providing historical and technical details.
