Enjoy an outdoor history lesson of one of the most daring operations by the Allied during the Second World War. The Bruneval Memorial is located at the exact spot where one of the stages of Operation Biting took place on 27th and 28th February 1942: the German defences prevented access to the beach. A first memorial was inaugurated on 30th March 1947 by General De Gaulle. It has been redesigned in 1975 and completed two years later with a staircase named Charles De Gaulle. It was inaugurated in June 2012 by Kenneth Holden, one of the last veterans of the raid. This memorial has been imagined by the association Bruneval 42, designed by the architect Bruno Saas and carried out by the town hall of Saint-Jouin-Bruneval.
