Teaching children the value and fragility of peace.​

The Servigny D-Day Fund was created on June 28, 2014, following the 70-year commemoration of the Cherbourg Surrender, held at the Château de Servigny in Normandy, under the patronage of the French commission for UNESCO, and in the presence of Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.

During this ceremony, which took place June 26, 2014, a 'Peace Mosaic', created by over one hundred children, was unveiled by UNESCO. The Servigny D-Day Fund is entirely devoted to: youth, education, benevolence, culture and passing on the importance of history and tolerance.

The Servigny D-Day Fund aims to re-establish the fraternity and understanding between peoples by undertaking concrete educational programs and school group tours dedicated to children of all nationalities to teach them the value and fragility of peace.

To achieve its purpose, Servigny D-Day Fund will mainly:
