Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Monument on the western side of Omaha Beach. Parking just across the road. This is a large monument built into the sand. French and U.S. flags continue to wave in the wind - a sign of the common bond and appreciation both countries have for each other. Worth coming to see and of course the beach itself.

This is one of many monuments along Omaha beach. It is at the waters edge and so is sometimes beyond the waterline. It is a peaceful sculpture in memory of the many thousands who died on this battle ground.
Other exhibits explain the history and some of the actions taken by the Nazi’s in the 4 years of occupation.

Sculpture to honor the fallen American soldiers, located on the Omaha Beach, Normandy. There is a sign explaining its meaning on the street.

Les Braves consists of three elements:
The wings of Hope
So that the spirit which carried these men on June 6th, 1944 continues to inspire us, reminding us that together it is always possible to changing the future.
Rise, Freedom!
So that the example of those who rose against barbarity, helps us remain standing strong against all forms of inhumanity.
The Wings of Fraternity
So that this surge of brotherhood always reminds us of our responsibility towards others as well as ourselves.
On June 6th, 1944 these man were more than soldiers, they were our brothers.

One of several monuments on Omaha Beach, Normandy, France. Created by a young French artist with financial assistance from several supporters.

Really interesting sculpture on a stunning beach. The perfect end to our day exploring the museums and monuments of the area.

This is a memorial of peace for all those who lost their lives on this beach in World War 2. This site is easy to access and take pictures of. This is a historical site worth the visit and to pay respect.

Ohama beach had the largest amount of casualties of any of the invasion beaches on D-Day. There were 2,400 casualties suffered by U.S. forces. And that includes wounded and killed as well as missing. There is no concrete number for the German forces that were killed at Omaha Beach.

Moving, peaceful, and yet overwhelming. The engraved obelisk seems to capture the rugged determination of the Allied soldiers who invaded and died here. The beach sculpture is subtle, yet powerful.

This is a very modern and moving sculpture at the same time set on a historic site of Omaha beach D-day landing.
It's set just behind the classic stone monument which stands by the big free parking lot.
The sculpture represents the Brave men landing, hence its name with three wings representing Freedom, Hope and Fraternity.

This sculpture is on Omaha beach, easy to access and photograph. It’s very moving and there is an display near it explaining the artist’s intent. It looks different approaching it from different directions. I’m no art critic, but I liked it and it seems to capture some of the feeling there.

Situated between the road and the main expanse of beach, this abstract sculpture isn't a destination in and of itself, but since you are already visiting Omaha Beach, it is a free sight to enjoy.
