6 June 2014 D-Day
Today we commemorate the fact that 70 years ago the American and British troops invaded Normandy in France. It was the beginning of the end of WW II. Anne Franck was still alive and wrote about D-Day in her diary. She wrote on Tuesday, 6 June 1944:
"This is D-day" the English radio said rightly," this is THE day", the invasion has begun!
This morning at eight o'clock the English reported: heavy bombardments of Calais, Boulonge, Le Havre and Cherbourg.."
The Dutch in Indonesia were still in concentrations camps, which lasted for another year. The Netherlands and more countries were still occupied by the Nazis, but there was hope that the war was going to end. Still many people had to die before it was really over.
|The leader of the American troops: Dwight Eisenhower|
Let's hope that there will never be a world war again.
