In response to a question about what to do, Elie Wiesel said



“Study … No bad can ever come from studying. Create a group, two, three, four five.” “The important thing is to question the text…” while at the Forum for Freedom and Solidarity preceding the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings.

The Freedom and Solidarity Forum aims to let leading decision-makers and the young generation learn from each other, inspired by the legacy of D-Day and the Marshall Plan.

On this occasion, leaders and prominent figures representing the countries that fought in Normandy to restore Democratic values on the european continent will come together to commemorate this historic event.

Leading up to the official ceremonies, the American Chamber of Commerce in France and the American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union are joining Caen and the Caen-Normandy Memorial to organize the Freedom and Solidarity Forum, to take place under the high patronage of François Hollande, President of the French Republic, on June 4 and 5, 2014 in Caen.
