Project ’44 will commemorate the 75th anniversary of Canadian Combat Operations in the Normandy Campaign covering the 6th of June to the 30th of August 1944. In partnership with our contributors and sponsors, we will be creating a dynamic online website combining interactive maps of the Invasion with relevant historical documents. Additionally, our organization will act as a central digital repository for these valuable pieces of history.
With access to archived documents from several historical and educational institutions such as Library and Archives Canada, The Gregg Center, Laurier Military History Archives, Lloyd Reeds Map collection and museums across Canada we will be merging collections. Offering unrestricted access to rare and never-before-seen Maps, Imagery and War diaries we hope to inspire further research within these fields.
