Prepare yourself for a sobering journey through history, as you take in the notorious battlefields, shocking concentration camps and poignant memorials of World War II. Much of Europe’s history has been sculpted by the harrowing events of WWII and while touring some of the sites can be an emotional experience. The sites serve as an important reminder of events that occurred, as well as a moving tribute to those who lost their lives on both sides of the war.

Visitors can explore the legendary sites of the D-Day Allied invasion, walking the landing beaches and battlefields of Normandy, including Utah Beach, Omaha Beach and Sword Beach, where over 16,000 paratroopers famously landed on June 5th and 6th in 1944. The shocking truths of the Holocaust are unveiled at the Terezin Memorial, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, Dachau Concentration Camp and inside the haunting gates of Auschwitz - sites that have been preserved in somber remembrance. Whether you lost family members in the war or simply have an interest in the most significant event of recent European history, it’s impossible not to be moved by the abundance of battle sites, memorials and war cemeteries found in all corners of the continent.
