To remember the past is to create a better future
The LRE Foundation is a growing international, inclusive network that connects people and organisations dedicated to preserving and valorising the tangible and intangible cultural heritage related to World War II, its memory and meaning. The organisation’s main objective is to make this history relevant and accessible, especially for the younger generations.
Each year, the annual LRE Forum organised by the LRE Foundation brings together members, partners and tourism stakeholders to hear updates from experts, network, and attend specialised travel trade events.
The 2022 edition will take place in Normandy, on 2-5 February in the city of Caen.
The LRE Foundation engages in several projects and activities, with a focus on remembrance and the youth.
