  6. Omaha Beach, 06:45

    Robert Capa shoots one photo after another, although he, like the other men of the 16th Infantry Regiment, crouches behind a wooden barrier and hopes that the mine attached to it does not explode.

    Translation of a timeline from Die Zeit this morning. That's your photo, Kate.

  8. I remember because my aunt Hannah lost her fiancee on D Day - he was killed aboard one of the ships on the crossing. I'll never forget how devastated she was.

  9. I cannot imagine a scene like this although my father was there, running one of those boats like those in the background.
