Canadians at Juno Beach

Canadians soldiers, the 3rd Infantry Division at Juno Beach, the weapons and technologies they used.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The most interesting thing I have learned is that Juno Beach helped Canadian soldiers gain recognition and independence among other nations. Before D-Day, Canada was placed behind Britain in military power.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I want Canadians to know that Canadian soldiers fought so hard for freedom, and sacrificed their lives in in the Second World War. We should remember those heroes and honour them for what they have done for us.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I would say that my life is a lot easier and safer, with so much technology. Compared to the Canadian soldiers in Juno Beach who always fear for their lives all the time, I can sleep peacefully in a comfortable bed.
