Lessons from D-Day 15:20

Published by: Rick Steves | School: Kenmore Elementary (Health)

This 15 minute series of three clips lets us tour the Normandy landing beaches, trace the way the heroic Allied landing led to the defeat of Hitler, and reviews the powerful memorials that help us remember the importance of that critical battle and understand how freedom is a blessing that many have died defending.

Notes to Viewers

Teachers and travelers: this is a fine example of how our Classroom Europe program can be used to almost instantly pull clips from our 20 years of TV production to mark important events in history. - Rick
