69th Anniversary of D-Day At Normandy: June 6,1944

Commemorations of the 69th anniversary of D-Day started Thursday in France with a flag-raising at an American cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach.

Tourists, many from the U.S. and Britain, gathered in the still morning under a brilliant spring sky to witness the flag-raising amid the neat rows of thousands of white marble crosses and stars of David marking the graves of U.S. servicemen and women killed during the Allied invasion of Normandy that began June 6, 1944.  More here (including photos).

D-Day As It Happened: real time as it did in 1944. Not only photos a film footage, but you can follow the lives of 7 people who were there from their perspective as it happened. This is very unique!
