American Cemetery Normandy detailed Description

In this guided tour, you will visit the American cemetery Normandy with a local guide and furthermore learn about the history of D-Day, June 6th, 1944.

The Memorial built in the American Cemetery Normandy lists the names of 1,557 Americans who lost their lives in the Normandy campaign but could not be located and/or identified.

You will also see the 22-foot bronze statue: The Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves. It is a monumental sculpture in the center of the Normandy Memorial at the American Cemetery Normandy.
