The Visit

The visit

Don’t miss the visit of the Alsace Moselle Memorial during your stay in the Bruche Valley, to better understand the history of Alsace Moselle.

Let yourself be taken on a two-hour tour and discover the particular history of the inhabitants of a border region, tossed back and forth between France and Germany for nearly 75 years.

Evacuations, expulsions, Nazification, forced incorporation, resistance, deportation were the daily lot of the Alsatians of Moselle who were the only ones, between 1940 and 1945, to experience the brutality of a totalitarian regime.

Because this history was tumultuous here, Strasbourg became, after the Second World War, the seat of the first European institutions whose vocation was to build a lasting peace.
