France 24 Celebrates The D-day In Times Square

On June 6th, to mark the 70th anniversary of D-DAY and the battle of Normandy, the international news channel France 24 will pay tribute to all the American soldiers who changed the course of History from Times Square in New York City.

On a giant Times Square screen, France 24 will broadcast the key moments of the ceremonies that will take place throughout the day in Normandy – both the national ceremony for civilian victims at the Caen Memorial and the international ceremony in Ouistreham in the presence of several Heads of State and Government. Through short promotional spots, the channel will also invite New Yorkers to comment and share their D-Day thoughts on social networks via the hashtag #France24DDay.

For those like us who want to thank the Americans for their invaluable support, take to social media and use #France24DDay to extend your warmest gratitude and admiration to the American soldiers that fought for France seventy years ago.
