Found this gem by accident while walking from the British cemetery to the museum across the road. Well taken care of and designed in a way to make your walk through the memorial reflective of the price of freedom of the press. Some names and their related stories were familiar, some not. Definitely worth a short visit. Can be easily... 更多
Other than names engraved in stone by year, there isn't much here. But then, that's the point. It's a stark reminder that hundred of journalists have died doing their jobs.
This Memorial is hidden beside and behind the Museum of the Battle of Normandy in a lovely garden and grove of trees. Its serene and peaceful location is a gentle reminder of the sacrifice journalists make daily. The silence is haunting.
This memorial is actually a short walk through a series of plaques which display the names of reporters who have died in the course of just doing their job. Many, if not most, of these individuals are unknown to, I'm estimating, most, if not all, tourists. However, I felt that it was important to pay tribute to them by reading... 更多
My wife and i were on our way to the British Cemetery when we happened across the memorial - a beautiful, curving path lined with large stones noting the names of war reporters who died in various years. A touching, thought provoking memorial to the brave reporters who put themselves in harms way to report the news. Well done!
I didn't know that this memorial was here and stumbled upon it. It is in a small grove of trees. Also the famous photojournalist Robert Capa is buried at the entrance of the memorial. Very beautiful and smart location to put such a memorial.
I am familiar with Bayeux but have never been here. Sad to realise that reporting conflicts can be deadly. Freedom of speech clearly has its price! I would have liked to have been informed of the trouble/conflict as peoples' names are not revealing enough.
I am pleased to have found this. I really didn't realise how many reporters have paid the ultimate sacrifice over the worlds conflicts in the years. I am pleased that they have been recognised for what they have done bringing us news as it happens.
A serene and beautiful garden with large stone plinths recording deaths of reporters around the world. A simple but thought provoking memorial
Hard to find spot (behind British Cemetery Memorial) Tall stones representing each year with names inscribed on appropriate year Quiet walk through area - only us and a dog walker. Very moving memorial
