The Weekend in Black and White - Le Monument Aux Morts

 

National D-Day Memorial . Bedford

This is a replica of Le Monument Aux Morts which was created by sculptor Edmond De LaHuerdrie in 1921 as a memorial to the 44 men from Trevieres, France who died in World War 1. The sculpture, Victory Holding a Sword, was damaged on D-Day. When it was recast for the National D-Day Memorial, the damage was symbolically preserved.
