Memoir Normande

As manager of a database for more than 120 museums in Normandy, La Fabrique de patrimoines en Normandie has used its expertise to improve access to archives and heritage collections devoted to the Atlantic Wall.

The result is the application Mémoire Normande, a website that provides thematic access to all Norman archives and images about the Atlantic Wall. The material comes from archives and private sources and consists of documents, photos and amateur films that together form a picture of how the remains of the Atlantic Wall since the Second World War have been dealt with, and the memories people have of it. Thanks to geo-reference it is also possible to link all images to locations. For documentary makers and researchers, the application includes a special search function.
