A new documentary film titled “Mother of Normandy” which is about the war time mayor of Sainte Mere Eglise France, Alexandre Renaud and his wife Madame Simone Renaud. 

This is the story of one remarkable woman, whose devotion to a generation of heroes transcended all boundaries. 

Madame Simone Renaud witnessed the liberation of France on June 6, 1944 from a very unique vantage point- the small town of Sainte Mere Eglise- the first town liberated in the D- Day invasion and the drop point for the 101st  and 82nd  airborne division of the United States Army.
