From Vimy to Juno
The Juno Beach Centre—Canada’s only education centre and museum on the D-Day landing beaches—is pleased to offer a new bilingual traveling exhibition, From Vimy to Juno.
Developed in participation with the Vimy Foundation, this exhibition examines Canada’s role in the First and Second World Wars, anchored on the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 and the D-Day landings on Juno Beach in June 1944.
Host venues will have a unique opportunity to present these significant events in connection with their own local stories, timed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Vimy in 2017 and the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019. There are no associated transportation costs or rental fees for the host venues, thanks to generous funding arranged by the Juno Beach Centre through the Department of Canadian Heritage. Communities to host the exhibition are encouraged to contribute local artifacts and documents for customization.
