Sites funéraires et mémoriels de la Première Guerre mondiale (Front Ouest) (T) Thibault Magnien

The sites related to WW1 are of great universal significance. The conflict had a huge impact not only for the people who were involved in it but also for all mankind. It took human people from the era of artisanal and local war to industrial and global war. The site also embodies the need, following the conflict, to honour and remember, on a large scale, those who fought and suffered. For the first time, anonymous fighters were honoured as much as famous heroes.

Les Plages du Débarquement, Normandie, 1944 (T) Thibault Magnien

The events related to Normandy 44, the operation Overlord and the WW2 in general, are of primary universal significance. These events shaped today’s world. The proposed sites in Normandy provide a clear testimony in the sense that they are well preserved and that the events and facts associated are clearly stated and explained.

In my opinion, this site deserves to be part of the WH list for its universal significance and as a testimony of one of the worst period in history.

Sites mégalithiques de Carnac (T) Thibault Magnien

To me, Carnac is the most important “missing WHS” for France. The site bears a unique testimony of the Neolithic period and possesses a tremendous variety of remains. It is definitely a must-see. The different museums in the area allow to better understand the site.

Metz Royale et Impériale, enjeux de pouvoir, confrontations stylistiques et identité urbaine (T) Thibault Magnien

As many cities in France, Metz takes its origin in the Pre-Roman and Roman time, has been growing as major medieval centre and retains today a variety of great monuments from the different periods, including a splendorous cathedral. However, what makes Metz unique is its position, on the border between Germany and France. The city has been disputed during centuries between the two nations. The result is a unique combination of French and German culture.
