Book Launch: D-Day to Bremen


2 Jun 2024, 1:00pm


Holocaust Centre North


Free - donations welcome

Tracy Craggs is Holocaust Centre North’s Head of Collections but she has also interviewed members of the armed forces for 25 years, both for her doctoral thesis ‘An Unspectacular War? Reconstructing the History of the 2nd Battalion East Yorkshire Regiment during the Second World War’ and also on behalf of museums and archives across the UK.

Her first (and last!) book resulted from a promise she made to the veterans of the 2nd Battalion to tell their story and her talk aims to bring to life the memories of some of the men who landed on Sword Beach on D-Day. She will describe, in their own words, what it was like to prepare for, and take part in, this momentous day.
