Presentation

Temporary exhibition | "Ten years of donations, collection of the Musée de la Résistance en Argoat" (in French)
From 17 September 2023 to 15 September 2024
At the Pôle de l'Etang Neuf.

Life in the past leaves traces that historians use to tell the story and offer us their interpretation. Official and private documents, objects, works of art and eyewitness accounts make up the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that is constantly being updated as new discoveries are made and questions raised.

Over the eleven years of its existence, the Musée de la Résistance en Argoat has been enriched by numerous donations from private individuals. Sometimes it's a simple photo, discovered when a relative died, or a gas mask relegated to the attic, but it can also be a deportation diary or a transceiver parachuted from England to the Resistance fighters.

From the seemingly banal, such as the ration coupons produced in millions, to the rarest, such as the photo of Abbé Fleury in his underground office, each of these gifts tells a story, both individual and collective.

We invite you to discover part of this history today, through a selection of objects and documents from our collections. Each of them illustrates a moment or an aspect of these war years.
This evocation, which runs from the beginning of the war to the liberation of the department's towns, does not show all the facets of the Occupation, as the documents and objects we have been given do not cover them all. We didn't want to add anything from outside the museum.

We are well aware that such an exhibition would not have been possible without the generosity of the men and women who have left us their precious memories. It is a tribute to them that we are presenting them to you today.
