The summer of 2014 was the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy—a monumental battle that turned the tides of World War II and stood as a symbol of hope for the Allied Forces. Each day we lose a saddening amount of World War II veterans and time is of the essence to capture their incredible stories for future generations.
Normandy: A World Apart is a documentary feature that tells the story of 94-year-old World War II veteran Harry Snyder on his journey back to the shores of Omaha Beach where he fought 71 years ago.
We fight to create this documentary now, while we still have access to first hand accounts of that invasion, because it is so incredibly important to our youth and to our future. We no longer have any World War I veterans alive today and soon—sooner than we’d like—World War II will follow.
We are doing this because we care deeply about giving back to our veterans and honoring their service. With your help, our World War II veterans and their experiences during the Second World War will be remembered for generations to come.
