D-Day: Does Europe Remember?
I thought I would scan British and French newspapers to see what they were saying about D-Day, with its 66th anniversary today. I looked at the on-line front pages of the Independent, Daily Telegraph, and Times (UK), and Le Monde and Le Figaro (France). Nothing. I'm sure there were opinion pieces, tv coverage, memorials, and so on, so at this point I just raise the question of how much Europe remembers. Of course a European (or a Euro-oriented American) might say we Americans are obsessed with past wars.
