For the anniversary of the Normandy landings, a special historical exhibition was organized. The event began with a recapitulation of Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland. It then proceeded to present the history of subsequent years of World War II. The presentation featured archival recordings, including the famous speech by the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
Prior to the official ceremonies, the Prime Minister met with the outgoing Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May, and after the celebrations he talked with the President of the United States Donald Trump and the Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel.
6 June 1944 marked the beginning of the greatest landing operation in history, which led to the end of World War II and the liberation of Europe. This complicated mission required unprecedented cooperation between the armed forces of many nations. The contribution made by the Polish armed forces to the ultimate defeat of Nazi Germany is worth emphasing. The ceremonies were an opportunity to honour those who made extraordinary sacrifices to ensure freedom in Europe.
