Interesting historic place. With the information displays outside it gives a good idea of what took place. Only thing I find a bit unrespectfull is the fact that inside the church they are selling cards of the blood stained church bench, like this is some sort of highlight. Facts do not have to be erased but to my opinion it shouldn't be commercialized.
This was a touching stop on the Band of Brothers tour with Overlord Tours. Two medics set up an aid station in this small church where they treated American and German casualties alike on/around D-Day. At one point a local French child was also brought in, also injured. The medics provided care to the child but then had to accompany their units and the child's care was turned over to others. The boy lived and was reunited with one of the medics decades later. There is a small monument to the two medics on the side of the road. I've included photos showing the monument, one showing a hole in the roof where a mortar shell fell, and another photo of a cracked floor stone. The story as it was relayed to us, is that this is where the mortar shell hit, but failed to detonate. On the day we visited there were several jeeps lining the road, and twelve to fifteen people outfitted in US Airborne uniforms and equipment. They were also visiting the church and memorial.
