May 8, 1945. Seventy-four years ago today. ⠀ ⠀ Europe and North America alike erupted in celebration upon the announcement. ⠀ ⠀ On that day, the Allies of World War II formally accepted Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender of its armed forces. After experiencing great loss of its armed forces at the Battle of the Bulge, Germany had nothing left but to surrender, thus ending the war in Europe.⠀ ⠀ This historic date is generally referred to as “V-E Day” or Victory in Europe Day. ⠀ ⠀ What does this day mean to you?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

And they still live, as they have since June 6, 1944, by their oft-repeated motto, “N’oubliez jamais”—never forget.”⠀ ⠀ Words and photo by @shellphoenix. ⠀ ⠀ Learn more about “The Girl Who Wore Freedom” at NormandyStories.com⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Thank you for helping us reach 1620+ followers! For all of our new friends who have joined us on this journey, we’d like to fill you in on what we are all about!⠀ ⠀ “The Girl Who Wore Freedom” is a forthcoming documentary film about the German occupation of Normandy during WWII and its eventual liberation by the allied soldiers in 1944. Our unique perspective leads viewers into a previously untold angle: the French citizens who lived through this turbulent time, and the impact on the generations who came after them.⠀ ⠀ One little girl’s story exemplifies how the French saw – and still remember – the bravery and heroism of the American GIs who liberated her town of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.⠀ ⠀ Her name is Dany Patrix, “The Girl Who Wore Freedom,” and she is the thread that weaves us throughout this story. We’d love it if you watched our trailer at NormandyStories.com and share it with your friends and family. It’s time the stories of the people of Normandy are told. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

We’re sharing another letter written by Paul Patrix, Dany’s father. While serving with the French Navy in 1940 on an unknown mission, Paul wrote letters to his family in a journal, unsure if he would ever see them again.⠀ ⠀ “June 5, 1940⠀ My dear wife,⠀ We just drank coffee, it is 7:30 a.m., the weather is cloudy, the sea is rough, we are at sea on the Spanish coast. There’s an alert, speed is reduced, we’re going from 15 knots to 4, the torpedo boat is making several passes. ⠀ ⠀ It is 5 p.m., we’ve turned around, we’re sailing again heading toward England. It seems that we must stay out a sea at Cap Saint Vincent to await another convoy of French troops, in my opinion, there’s another reason. We don’t have any more bread, water is scarce… do you have foot to eat? They told us in England that the Germans have requisitioned everything, how I sympathize with you if it’s true. And my little ones, what will become of you? What bad luck! Can’t wait for this all to end!⠀ ⠀ Your husband who thinks of you. ⠀ Kisses, Paul”⠀ .⠀ Normandystories.com⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀

The year was 1944, and Dany's town had been under Nazi rule for four years. As the US servicemen landed on France’s Utah Beach and streamed through Ste. Marie du Mont, many stooped to give her candy, gum, and chocolat — delights the five-year-old had never before experienced. . It signaled a turn in life as she knew it...a new world of freedom, gratitude, and opportunity.

In June 1940, Dany Patrix’s father Paul was serving in the French Navy when he was abruptly ordered to evacuate, leaving his family behind without the chance to bid farewell. Over the following months, he could only write letters to them in a journal, not knowing if he would ever see them again. We shared one of his first letters last week, and the following is an entry he wrote a few days later.⠀ ⠀ “June 21, 1940⠀ ⠀ My darling wife,⠀ ⠀ Ongoing tribulations, we disembark at midnight on a large tug taking us to Plymouth. We are exhausted on the train, everyone falls asleep and yet my wife, before sleeping I want to tell you my adventures in case I do not come back, my notebook could touch you. ⠀ ⠀ My wife, my little ones, I’ll say goodbye, see you tomorrow.

“The Jeep, the Dakota, and the Landing Craft were the three tools that won the war." —Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower One of America’s most popular vehicles, the Jeep was first manufactured during WWII for military transport. According to warhistoryonline.com, “The story of the Jeep begins in the late 1930s, when the United States military was searching for a vehicle that was light, rugged and could travel over rough terrain. By the early 1940s, the Jeep’s design was complete, and the rest is history.” In total, there were over 640,000 of the vehicles built during the second world war. Today, tours around Normandy in authentic “Willys” jeeps are popular year-round, especially during the annual D-Day anniversary celebrations each June.

Over the following months, he could only write letters to them in a journal, not knowing if he would ever see them again. We’ll share some of those letters (translated) over the next few weeks. Here is one of the first entries: . ——June 17th, 1940 | On board the trawler “Nadine” at sea off the French coast. . My darling wife, I was like most of my comrades obliged to leave Saint Vaast without being able to go home or let you know that I was gone. . We were prepared for the defense of Fort de la Hougue since we had no possibility of going out when suddenly the order of Captain Hamond we started boarding at about 4:30, the water in the belly and even up to the chin... The Germans fly over the Hougue and launch several bombs that do not reach anyone, fortunately. . I wanted to stay and maybe I could have managed to go home. I think of you, my wife and my little ones, finally if we do not land on a mine or if we do not make bad encounters, I hope to see you again all three. . Your husband who thinks of you, his Francis, his little Dany and all those who are dear to me. Paul.—— . Photo: Dany (our “Girl Who Wore Freedom”) and her father. .

A Story of Gratitude.👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 . In May of 2015 a secret radio signalman’s nest of the 3111 Signal Service Battalion was discovered in a home in Carentan, France when a roof was being replaced. A virtual time capsule from 1944. A friend contacted Jean-Marie Caillard, @jmcaillard — a local WWII enthusiast, curator, museum owner and a man known in the region as one who does not profiteer from selling relics but someone who has a desire to share and show what he finds to honor his liberators. . Over the course of three days, Jean-Marie and his son Gregoire rescued the abandoned items. Gregoire noticed some papers hidden under a broken floorboard. The letters reveled an even more secret story… Sgt. Robert Miller of the 3111 Signal Service Battalion spent days in that attic and stored his precious letters from home in the cracked floorboards. Jean-Marie tried in vain to reach anyone connected to the GI in the United States. He desperately wanted to uncover. . In September of 2017, TGWWF Director @meetchristiantaylor was interviewing Jean-Marie for this documentary and was given a tour of the re-created radio signalman’s nest that Jean-Marie assembled to honor the 3111 Signal Service Battalion. As she learned about this story and examined the letters she discovered Sgt. Miller’s family lived not very far from her home. Her military mother’s heart was moved and she vowed to help Jean-Marie find Sgt. Robert Miller’s family. A vow she would keep. . In this video, Jean-Marie tells Christian about the letters for the first time. It is difficult for him to articulate just how grateful he is to the men who liberated his hometown nearly 75 years ago. These are the stories of gratitude and liberation that "The Girl Who Wore Freedom" film seeks to tell. Help us in this journey. Donate now at normandystories.com . . . . .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀

At 11:59 Slothrop turns to Tantivy, nods at the two girls, tries to chuckle lewdly, and gives his friend a quick, affectionate punch in the shoulder. Once, back in prep school, just before sending him into a game, young Slothrop’s football coach socked him the same way, giving him confidence for at least fifty seconds, till being trampled flat on his ass by a number of red-dogging Choate boys, each with the instincts and mass of a killer rhino.

🎥 Faces of the Film: Valérie Gautier Cardin / President of Veterans Back to Normandy Association.⠀ .⠀ “An errand to run, an encounter, a lost man and the beginning of an adventure.” This is how Valérie describes the way her passion for the veterans of WWII was born. She met her first lost veteran at the age of 15 and helped him reunite with the French family that hid him when he escaped a German prison camp.

Our composer @jeff_kurtenacker and Lena (the young actress who portrays Dany in the film) in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. We invited Lena to sing French songs inside the church, which has beautiful stained glass windows paying tribute to U.S. paratroopers that liberated the town in 1944. Swipe for more photos!

The church in the first town liberated on D-Day. Private John Steele’s parachute was caught on the bell tower. He pretended to be dead and consequently survived.

‘’Devant le tribunal de l'histoire les conquérants descendent de leurs chars de triomphe; les tyrans n'effraient plus par leurs satellites; les princes nous apparaissent sans leur cortège, et dépouillés de la fausse grandeur que leur prêtait la flatterie.’’

More of our dday tour in Sainte Mere Eglise. There isn't much more besides the dummy of John Steeles still hanging from the church and the airborne museum. We, like everyone else it seems, stayed long enough to take pics, go to the museum and have a coffee. (Check the pics of this places bathroom 😱). You need to zoom in to see the dummy - more about John Steele below.

The beautiful church and square in Sainte-Mère-Église where paratrooper John Steele actually landed on the church steeple in the early hours of D-day in the battle for Normandy. He hung there, playing dead for a few hours, before being cut loose and captured by the Germans.

A year ago this week. Standing in front of the church in Sainte Marie Église with some lovely Dutch friends and trying (like I always seem to be doing) to keep mon chapeau from flying away. Really missing Normandy this week, what a beautiful place. Photo Credit; @jtitusp
