Fallenstencil5ag

In order to commemorate the civilians, Allies and German forces who died on Arromanches beach on 6 June 1944, hundreds on volunteers helped to create 9,000 stencil silhouettes of those killed, installing them into the sand in Normandy. The silhouettes were created to mark International Peace Day in September 2013 by sculptors Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss.
