According to the official site of the commemorations:
“Traditionally, annual commemorations of the Landings of June 6th 1944 have always been major events for Basse-Normandie … and because this will likely be the last decennial anniversary to take place in the presence of actors in and witnesses to those momentous events, it will be a particularly special occasion; welcoming a still large number of the remaining men and women who act as guardians of this “living memory” – probably for the last time and in celebration of a great anniversary – will indeed be the cause for heartfelt emotion”.
