The Memorial

Why should I visit the memorial ?

The Alsace-Moselle Memorial is the result of regional desire and effort. It attempts to explain the complicated history of Alsace and Moselle, particularly during the Second World War.

From 1940 to 1945, Alsace-Moselle were the only region of the French territory to be annexed by the Third Reich and to experience the extreme violence of a totalitarian regime. The situation of this region is the result of its complicated history. It was disputed by France and Germany for a long time, taken back and forth by these two countries, and that explains why its culture is
richer today.

This place gives a history lesson to all, and shows the necessity to unite Europeans in their diversity and the respect and dignity of every person in order to offer them peace and freedom.
