|Memories of the war are apparent in much of France this
week. Among the reminders is the release of the new American film Pearl
Harbor on Wednesday, June 6. Far more than December 7
for us, June 6 is a date that lives in the French memory. The
grand meeting of veterans in Les Sables is another commemoration of that
date, as was the
playing of the movie The Longest Day on prime time television
The silhouette to the left is visible in storefronts all around town. This week Les Sables also commemorates the works of the legendary author Georges Simenon, who placed several of his police novels, including some featuring the Inspector Maigret, in and around Les Sables.
