6 June 1944 - D Day. “The objective was to make a visual representation of 9000 people drawn in the sand which equates the number of Civilians, Germans Forces and Allies that died during the D-day landings, 6th June during WWII as an example of what happens in the absence of peace.." see: http://thefallen9000.info/about/
• Hitler never allows anyone to see him while he is naked or bathing. He refuses to use cologne or scents of any sort on his body
• No matter how warm he feels, Hitler will never take off his coat in public
• In 1923, Nazi press secretary Dr. Sedgwick tried to convince Hitler to get rid of his trademark mustache or grow it normally. Hitler answered: “Do not worry about my mustache. If it is not the fashion now, it will be later because I wear it!”
D-Day. Thousands of American soldiers stormed Omaha Beach located on the cost of France on June 6th, 1944.
The primary objective at Omaha was to secure a beachhead of some five miles depth, between Port-en-Bessin and the Vire River. The Germans primary objective was to hold the American troops from entering the beach.
Hundreds of men fought and died for our country on this beach. I hope some day I can stand on this beach and feel the emotion and history of the brutal warfare that once took place there.
