Join the Huron County Museum for this virtual presentation by Alex Fitzgerald-Black of the Juno Beach Centre Association. This event is free or by donation.
Canada’s D-Day Story will begin with a talk about Canada’s role on Juno Beach and in the Battle of Normandy. The speaker will briefly share the story of a relatively unknown Canadian D-Day hero. From here we will track the story behind the Centre’s creation and how the museum operates as Canada’s primary Second World War site of memory.
