Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial - Here the heroes rest

This World War II cemetery and memorial in Colleville-sur-Mer is a landmark to the Allied troops who lost their lives in Normandy.

A green field with white crosses and stars of David displayed symmetrical, who give name to 1557 American soldiers.

At the center is a 22-foot bronze statue entitled “The Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves” in a clear reference to the Disembark.

On the walls next to the statue we can see 2 maps, one of the landings in the Normandy beaches and other with the military operations in the Western Europe.
