hello
There's always rememberance "celebration" in Normandy every year.
We learn about the date at school as early as CM2 (~10yo) but we study it further in 3ème (~14yo) and in 1ère (~16yo) and there are school trip to the beaches and museums if you don't live far from the region. It's not a bank-holiday, only the 8th May is for WW2.
If you have detailled question I can try to answer.
