This year, the Big Screen will be playing a specially commissioned video (full detail below) throughout the day and you can join a special service which will be held at the D-Day Museum on Clarence Parade, Portsmouth.

"t the age of eight, Bea Green witnessed the aftermath of the violent public humiliation of her father, carried out on the streets of Munich. Bea fled Nazi Germany in 1939, but this shocking incident left a lasting impact.
The treatment of Bea’s father was encouraged by Nazi law - because he was Jewish. Such persecution is unlawful here in the UK, but people still face discrimination because of their faith, sexual orientation, race or disability.
