The Memorial

A tour experience

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 time of the Second World War.

From 1940 to 1945, Alsace and Moselle were the only areas of the French territory to be annexed by the Third Reich and to experience the extreme violence of a totalitarian regime. The agony cannot be understood without retracing the historical steps of a region long disputed by France and Germany, whose culture is richer today because of this long struggle.

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