NORMANDY, France (NBC/EBU) - A group of activists and artists stenciled 9,000 silhouettes on a Normandy beach throughout the weekend to visually show the number of people killed on D-Day during World War II.
More than 500 artists and volunteers used stencils to portray the victims on the sands of Normandy.
A pair of British artists came up with the idea, Andy Moss and Jamie Wardley.
"It represents the amount of people who died in one day on … in this area, and those people are all the combatants, the allies, the German forces and the civilians,” said Wardley. “And it's just a demonstration visually of what happens in the absence of peace, and today's Peace Day. So it's the 21st of September, and this is to celebrate that, really."
The tides washed away the silhouettes at the end of the day.
