A Lasting Legacy:
Great Women of the War (1939-1945)
Presented by EF and the Juno Beach Centre, join us for a special virtual event where we’ll get a sneak peak into the temporary exhibition Great Women of the War (1939-1945) housed at the world-class Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France.
We’ll learn about the brave women who played an integral role during the Second World War and paved the way for social change. Enjoy a talk from Juno Beach Centre staff, watch a recorded interview with one of Canada’s last surviving female pilots from the Second World War, and listen to a student-led Q&A session—just in time for Remembrance Day.
Learn more about the important invasion known as D-Day when you visit the Juno Beach Centre.
