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

A beach of pilgrimage.

Utah Beach, June 6th, 1944. The centre of the assault is set for W5, the big dune. At midnight, the 101 and 82 Airborne division parachute land on Utah beach.

Next come the reinforcements with 102 gliders, and six hours later the 4th Infantry Division begin to land on Utah Beach.

Five months after the landings, the German soldiers were defeated by U.S. troops at a cost of many battles and losses. A million men landed on the beach in Normandy.

Many monuments and the Omaha Beach Museum recount these events in the history of World War II at Utah Beach, now a much visited pilgrimage site.
