"War is our past" A quantitative analysis of collective memory D-Day in France and the United States
Abstract
Inspired by a visit to Omaha Beach, following in the footsteps of her grandfather, the author develops a twelve question survey of 125 individuals to compare and contrast the collective memory of both French and Americans. The aim of this study is to explore the collective memory of D Day and how it manifests itself in the relationship between France and the United States. The following three questions are addressed: 1. “Does the collective memory of WWII and D-Day change with nationality between France and the United States?" 2. "Do people think that the events of the Second World War World influence the world today?" 3. “Are French and American citizens aware of the political relationship between France and the United States (D-Day was also shared with other events) and does the collective memory of these events speak to the relationship between the two countries?"
