    Normandy 1944 photos as compared to today

    Here's the link to a sort of slide show presentation. It shows buildings, houses, churches in black and white photos taken around the time of D-Day; then a comparative color photo taken from the same angle as it looks today.

    Very interesting, sometime it changed a lot, sometime hardly at all.

    A friend sent me the same as a MS Powerpoint. I was astounded. It took a lot of time to go through old WWII archives and then match the photos to the current and then create a digital book. A very moving presentation, and I love the soundtrack.

    Cool photos! I'd like to see the WWII ones in color also compared to the modern colors.

    All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

    Thank you for posting this! I was in Normandy in July of 2005. If you ever get the opportunity, visit the "Musee pour la paix" (Museum for peace) near the city of Caen. When I was there, they had a theater in which they showed a film with two movies playing simultaneously, side by side on the same screen. The films showed synchronized activities of the allies' preparations for the invasion next to the Nazi activities. I thought it was very interesting.

    It is a shame that the lives, limbs and futures of all those who served will never be the same as they were before the madness.

    God bless them all, past, present and future.

    That's pretty neet. As you said it's almost like time stood still for some.

    That was amazing. On a related note...there's something coming up sometime here shortly on the History Channel on a fella that just recently found his 8mm film that he had stowed away after the war. They preserved it, it's in COLOR to boot. They're going to dedicate an entire show to it and show off some of the footage.
