Colette Marin-Catherine was 16-years-old when the Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day. A few days later, civilians in the village of Norrey are killed and wounded by German SS troops. She remembers the days spent transporting the wounded to hospital in Bayeux – the first city to be freed.
