You have to see this to believe it. Please click on the link and see back in awe.

 

An ambitious installation that was put together by hundreds of volunteers, the "Fallen 9000" project serves as a reminder of the staggering cost of lost peace.

 

A tribute to the roughly 9,000 civilians, Allies and German soldiers alike who lost their lives on D-Day, the project involved the painstaking stenciling of 9,000 silhouettes on the Normandy beach at Arromanches where so much blood was once shed.
