Press conferences take place across Europe to present Europe Remembers and the 80th anniversary of D-Day and Provance landings.


Press Conference Europe Remembers

Throughout February, March and April, the LRE Foundation has been participating in a series of press conferences organised collectively by partners Normandie Tourisme, Var Tourisme, and Atout France (France Tourism Development Agency). These events aim to highlight the upcoming 80th anniversary of the D-Day and Provance Landings while providing a platform to present our project, Europe Remembers. 

The press conferences were held in significant locations: the first in London at the Imperial War Museum, the second in Amsterdam at the Verzetsmuseum Resistance Museum, and the third in Brussels at the Royal Military Museum. A fourth press conference will be organized on April 2 at the Musée de l’Armée in Paris

During these gatherings, attendees had the opportunity to delve into the anniversary commemorations for the D-Day Landings and Operation Dragoon scheduled for this year, whilst gaining insights into the programmes’ details.

Another focal point discussed was the LRE Foundation’s initiative, Europe Remembers, an international awareness campaign and online platform to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the end of World War II and draw attention to historical events and commemorations across Europe. The campaign is a collaborative project supported by many partners across Europe including Region Normandy and Normandy Tourism.  

The four press conferences provided an excellent opportunity to present and promote the project in front of professional journalists, laying the groundwork for reaching an international and diverse audience.
