Three sisters, deaf by birth, chose to spend a few vacation days in Verdun.
Verdun, a city with a rich history of the 1st World War. They share their difficulties…
Our first item on the agenda was to go to the Tourist Office. As deaf people, we had difficulty communicating with hostesses wearing masks! We asked them to please remove them or to write on a sheet of paper, which they gladly did. On other sites, the hostesses warmly welcomed us and articulated very well.
Equipped with precious maps, we were able to establish our program of visits which was most enriching:
In visiting the citadel of Verdun in a small train, we had a new request: “We are deaf, can you explain to us again what you just said.” This allowed us to have priority and be the first to go on the tour!
The refurbished Verdun Memorial is very visual and didactic.
Relief maps and commented films had written and oral translations in German and English. I therefore asked:
Would you have the French written texts?
No! Press the buttons.
But they are in English and German. We are French!
Oh yes, we didn’t realize. You can write your request in the guestbook.
After complimenting the quality of the exhibition, I wrote down my proposal hoping that it will be realized.
