Liberation Route Europe’s 10th Anniversary Celebration: Save the Date! 



We are excited to share the programme of the Liberation Route Europe 10- Anniversary celebratory event! On June 7, we will gather in Arromanches-les-Bains, the same place where 10 years ago the Liberation Route Europe project was officially launched.  

This milestone event promises to be a day of reflection, remembrance, and celebration, set against the backdrop of one of Europe’s most historically significant locations. The day will kick off with a Liberation Walk, beginning at 9:30 am from the Esplanade in front of the D-Day Museum in Arromanches. Led by experienced guides, participants will embark on a 3km journey through the historical city of Arromanches offering a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the Normandy’s history.

Following the walk, the ’10 Years of Liberation Route Europe’ Ceremony will take place from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. The program will feature speeches by representatives from Liberation Route Europe, project partners and local officials, highlighting the project’s achievements over the past decade. The event will move on with the presentation of the new Liberation Route Europe and the Arromanches themed route and Vector of Memory and a special tribute to veterans.  

The celebration will end with a convivial Refreshment Gathering and Guided Tour of the museum (upon registration) from 12:00 to 13:00. Here, guests will have the chance to mingle, share stories, and reflect on the occasion’s significance in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. 

“As we mark the tenth anniversary of the international launch of the Liberation Route Europe, I stand immensely proud of the extraordinary journey we have embarked upon together. The Liberation Route Europe has grown into a vast network of remembrance and reflection, connecting people and places with the profound stories of liberation that shaped our world. Along this journey, we have achieved remarkable milestones, none more emblematic than the Vectors of Memory, conceptualized by the architect Daniel Libeskind. As we look back on a decade of achievements, our hearts are filled with gratitude for the countless individuals and organizations that have joined us on this path of remembrance and education. The Liberation Route Europe is more than a route through geography—it is a journey through time, memory, and the very soul of our shared identity”, said Rémi Praud, LRE Foundation Managing Director.  

“As we celebrate this milestone, we renew our commitment to preserving the legacy of those who fought against the Nazi regime, ensuring their stories and sacrifices continue to inspire a future grounded in peace”, he added.  

The LRE Foundation would like to express its gratitude to the Normandy Region and Tourism Board, the City of Arromanches, and the D-Day Museum in Arromanches for their support in organizing this event. We also want to thank the Vfonds, Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe, and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in The Hague for their valuable support of the Liberation Route throughout the years. 

The full programme of the event has been shared with our network of members and partners, whose attendance would mark a significant milestone for us, given their crucial contribution to the project’s development.
