The Memorial de Caen

The Memorial de Caen
Caen, France

The extraordinary success of the Mémorial de Caen museum lies in the initial resolve of its founder, Mr Jean-Marie Girault. With destruction wreaked across almost three quarters of this martyr city of the Liberation in the summer of 1944, Caen deserved a fitting tribute for the damage it suffered. And such a tribute was paid, but with the focus on what continues to be the Mémorial’s running theme: reconciliation. This vocation, unique to the Mémorial de Caen museum, will guide you through the museum’s different stages, taking you back over the 20th century.
