Several ceremonies are scheduled on Sunday to commemorate the 77th anniversary of D-Day that led to the liberation of France and Europe from the German occupation.

 

On June 6, 1944, more than 150,000 Allied troops landed on code-named beaches, carried by 7,000 boats.

For the second year in a row, commemorations are marked by virus travel restrictions that have prevented veterans or families of fallen soldiers from the U.S., Britain and Canada making the trip to France.

Most public events have been canceled and the official ceremonies are limited to a small number of selected guests and dignitaries.

Over the anniversary weekend, many locals have come out to visit the monuments marking the key moments of the fight and show their gratitude.
