In the fall of 2014, I spent two months in Paris with visits to other places. I went from Paris to Marseilles, Nice, Milan and Geneva while my husband did research in the archives for his book. Click on the pages for each place to see what I found there.
In November, we went to Normandy to visit the WWII D-Day beaches and memorials there. 2014, being the 70th anniversary of the end of the war meant that there were many expositions and events commemorating this history.
