The WWII Fallen at Normandy. In Sept 2013, two British artists, with the help of citizens from Arromanches, France drew the silhouettes of 9,000 fallen soldiers in the sand on the beach at Normandy. It took 200 volunteers and two years of planning. The event marked the International Day of Peace and the ghostly outlines remained on the sand until washed away by the tide. Hero. Heroes.
