Remembering with stories

Storytelling is a very strong tool to remember our history.
Yesterday it was 70 years ago the Allied Forces landed on the beaches of Normandy, France. To start the liberation of Europe.

When you see the age of the veterans, and the few there are left. Storytelling becomes very important. Because the people who were there, who lived through that hell, they soon won't be around anymore to share their story. Capturing their story now is very important, so it can be preserved for generations to come, to retell and remember what happened.

From Huffingtonpost
it is hard to remember when you are there now a days, what happened there 70 years ago. Although it is such an important part of our history.

Listen to the stories of the heroes of those days, and retell their story. Those stories must never be lost.
