The Reporters Memorial was established in 1994 in Bayeux in an area near the War Cemetery to commemorate those war reporters who had lost their lives telling us about world conflict.
The seven foot stone pillars that line the walkway record the names of the dead for each year.There’s no room to describe how they lost their lives, just their names.
The plaque at the beginning of the avenue, which is bordered by trees and wild flowers is simple in it’s message.
” Bayeux, which witnessed a freedom dearly won, has included the Memorial to Reporters in its “Liberty Alley” centre, to encourage the younger generations to think about what freedom really means.”
