We had the most amazing experience at Epinal American Cemetery when we visited in August. A wonderful man (whose name I forgot to get!) welcomed us and when he found out we were visiting our great-great uncle’s grave, he treated us like VIPs. He gave us many pamphlets and information on Epinal. After we signed the special family guest book, he walked us to the grave and planted an American and French flag in the ground. He then had us rub wet sand from Omaha beach onto the engraving to stand out for our photos. To finish off our amazing experience he ran back to the office and played “America the Beautiful” and “Taps” on the speaker system throughout the cemetery. I did not expect this to be such an emotional experience, but it ended up being the highlight of our trip! Thank you again to everyone at Epinal!

The Musée de l'Image | ville d'Épinal is an amazing museum where prints "tell us about" ourselves and our history... Nowadays, the town of Épinal is well known all over Europe for its traditional prints. The town's printmakers were originally makers of playing cards and decorative coloured paper. Although they started producing prints on paper in the 18th century, it was the printmakers Pinot and Pellerin who built Épinal's reputation in the 19th century. In the Museum, the 400m² permanent exhibition galleries present a wide choice of popular prints from the 17th century to the present day, and the major engravers and main centers in the print industry... It explains the aims of different prints: to enlighten, entertain and teach the public, to sell the prints... From religious prints to short moral stories for young children, via propaganda, paper theaters, folios and pictures of soldiers, satirical prints, advertisements... Popular prints covered all these subjects and more.
