Omaha...Utah...Juno...Gold... were among the code names for the beaches at Normandy where the Allied forces landed in June of 1944 to deliver Europe from the Nazis.
Authouart was born in Lillebonne, near Le Havre, in Normandy, in 1943. The D-Day invasion, the war, and the post war years obviously had an enormous impact on his life.
In this piece you can see the houses in 1950. The peace and good fortune have returned. You see a father, a mother and their children in the sun. Soon they will have lunch.
But beyond their now peaceful world, under the sand and in the sky are some old photographs (a war plane, some soldiers) that tell of the sacrifice of so many young American boys a few short years ago.
