The Dieppe Raid is shrouded in controversy and tragedy. For decades, it dominated Canadians’ collective memory of the war. Considered a tragic failure since 1942, its story is as complex as it is nuanced. The presentation will explore the challenges of putting together an exhibition on a subject of failure in a place of victory like Juno Beach. It will also explore our evolving understanding of the raid, its links to Juno Beach on D-Day and the liberation of Dieppe in September 1944 as well as its place in Canada’s collective memory of the Second World War.
