Commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day and embark on a virtual transatlantic adventure to the sites where D-Day history was made. Guided by student reporters from the United States, England, Canada, and France, this journey will provide insights into the largest amphibious invasion in history. Your students will discover the lessons and legacies of Operation Overlord as they explore the coast of southern England, the iconic invasion sites in Normandy, France, and participate in a special remembrance at the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach.

The program features live polling and Q&A, so students can participate without ever leaving their classroom. No special technology is required to view. English and French captions will be available for the live webcast. Classroom participation is free but requires advance registration.
