What These People Did On A Normandy Beach Is Incredible. Awe-inspiring When Seen From Above

Last week was the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings where the Allied forces landed on the beaches of Normandy which was the beginning of the end for Germany.

The 6th of June 1944 is a very important day in history; it was a turning point of the war.

But we should never forget that 9000 people died that day.

Two English artists, Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss, along with 60 volunteers armed with rakes and stencils set about creating images of bodies on the beach.

As word spread 500 locals joined in helping to rake the images into the sand, they knew that their work would only last a few hours. Apart from these incredible photos which have recorded their work for life.

This incredible beach image created last year (2013) represents those who died on both sides including civilians.
