Rough Guides

A unique travel guide to commemorate 75 years of the liberation of Europe

Liberation Route Europe Foundation and Rough Guides are pleased to announce their new travel book about the liberation of Europe during World War II. The book is the first of its kind, combining the signature Rough Guides writing style with the Foundation’s expertise in this period of history. The book covers hundreds of locations through regions in nine different countries, focusing on the liberation routes of the Allied advance. It is a unique contribution to remembrance tourism and will make this important part of European history accessible to a wide audience.

Rémi Praud, managing director of Liberation Route Europe Foundation, says:
“We are excited to work together with Rough Guides, a leader in innovative travel publishing, on this new project. By combining their experience with Liberation Route Europe’s expertise in this field, we have found a special way to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Europe.”

Agnieszka Mizak, managing director of Rough Guides says:
“Rough Guides is extremely pleased to work with the Liberation Route Europe Foundation and collaborate on such an important project. With this book, we can make sure that people are reminded of this turning point in our history, paying tribute to the people who made it happen.”
