A small group of us walked to this memorial from the harbour (which doesn't take long). We so happened to be here during the 76th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid. This memorial brought home the poignant utter waste of life caused by the megalomaniacs and...More

This is an important site and helps to set the stage for walking the beach where the Canadian assaulted in 1942. Take a minute to acknowledge the loss before walking the beach.

Neatly kept and poignant and along with the exhibition (found in an old theatre behind the Mercure Hotel) it helps to keep alive the memory of the Allied sacrifices given to liberate France. The Memorial concentrates though on the part played by the Canadian army....More

I think this Museum is run by volunteers, so opening times can be erratic. It took us a few visits to find it open. The museum is done very well, and the setting in a run down theater is perfect. Take time to watch the...More

Two parts to this ‘attraction’; the memorial garden to the Canadians and the museum. The garden is small and allows for quiet reflection. The museum has an informative video loop and some interesting personal stories of the abortive 1942 raid
