Journey to Memorials of World War II with the WITF Travel Club in August 2019
By members request, WITF will return to Normandy for a third time to remember the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day Landing. Join WITF on a ten-day journey to see where history took place.
An unforgettable journey of discovery and remembrance awaits you on a sojourn to Northern France on the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. In Westminster, discover London’s connections to the war at Churchill’s underground War Rooms. Travel to Paris via the high-speed Eurostar Train, and drive through the French countryside on route to Caen Canal and Pegasus Bridge, captured by the heroic British 6th Airborne Division. Immerse yourself in the history of Normandy’s D-Day Landing Beaches. Visit the Normandy American Cemetery and the memorial to Major Richard Winters. Pay your respect to the fallen men of the Commonwealth land forces with no known graves at Bayeux Memorial, and visit the Museum of Surrender in Reims, where the German’s gave their unconditional surrender to end the war in Europe. Finish in Paris for the incomparable experience of dining inside the Eiffel Tower.
Meet others whose curiosity and passion for lifelong learning matches your own. Travel with WITF!
