One ocean carried men from the beaches of the Gaspé Coast to the shores of Normandy. For the men who survived, these waves are a constant reminder, transporting them back to the horrors at Juno Beach, the destruction of Carpiquet, or the suffering in the Polish POW camps. The few remaining veterans share their story with us, their letters from the front, though censored, reveal the distance between what they choose to remember and what they are unable to forget.
