On June 6, 1944, the largest seaborne invasion in history took place, finally turning the tide of World War II and leading to the eventual defeat of Nazi Germany.

Operation Neptune, widely known as D-Day, was the much-anticipated operation that began the liberation of France from German occupation.

In honor of the 76th anniversary of this historic event, we’ve brought together a collection of iconic photographs of the operation and used MyHeritage In Color™ automatic colorization technology to bring the photos to life.


Incredible how seeing these photos in color brings out the drama of the moment: the rising mist and smoke in the foggy morning light, the bright green of the landscape beneath the gliders, the treacherous rocky terrain scaled by these brave soldiers who risked their lives to fight for freedom.

See your own family’s past in a whole new light by colorizing black and white photos with MyHeritage In Color™. You can also peruse MyHeritage’s military records to learn more about the heroes in your own family.
