It is in Normandy that the shape of the present world has been drawn. The landing of the 6th of June 1944 was a turning point of the Second World War. Since then, the Normandy Region has established itself as a tourist destination deeply related to the field of memory where visitors from all countries and all generations meet to discover and share the memory of those who fought for peace. From this historical context and being aware of the related issues, the international strategy adopted in 2016 proposes a political orientation towards peace. The strategy Normandy for Peace aims to make out of Normandy a territory internationally known for its topics related to peace, freedom, conflict resolution, human rights and reconciliation. The remembrance tourism in Normandy represents 5 million annual visits.
