The immersive film

The immersive film shown on the ground floor of the memorial is edited from English, German and French archives.

This film tells the successive steps of an aerial bombing. The massive bombardments are one of the features of Second World War. They mainly targeted industrial cities and also served to demoralize the population or, as in Falaise, to break the German military resistance.

The number of deaths is very difficult to quantify. Many have died from their injuries, sometimes years later.
