BAYEUX, THE UNSCATHED: from the Occupation to general de Gaulle’s speech

The story of Bayeux, entirely spared from war destructions, is revealed from the inhabitants’ point of view. The hardship of their everyday life made way to joy on 14th June 1944, when general de Gaulle, turned the unscathed city of Bayeux into “the capital of Free France”. Thanks to anecdotes and archive pictures visitors will get a feel for the atmosphere in the city in 1944.
