An Immersive Exhibit of D-Day and the Normandy Landings

“D-Day and the Normandy Invasion” is an exhibit in the Google Cultural Institute that explores wartime photos, moving pictures, audio, and documents from the largest amphibious invasion in history.

Declassified cables, reports, and maps that were critical in planning the invasion are set against high resolution photos taken by combat photographers. The exhibit features over forty multi-media items including:

  • The military conclusion signed by Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin to choreograph a “cover plan to mystify and mislead the enemy…”
  • The patent for the strategically important “Higgins” boat that would transport military equipment to the beaches. 
  • The audio recording of General Eisenhower delivering his “Order of the Day” for Allied Forces.
