Temporary exhibition | “Ten years of donations, collection of the Resistance Museum in Argoat”

At the Pole of Etang Neuf.

The life of the past leaves traces that historians use to tell the story and offer us their interpretation. Official or private documents, objects, works of art, testimonies, make up the pieces of a puzzle constantly renewed according to new discoveries and our questions.

During these eleven years of existence, the Resistance Museum in Argoat has been enriched by numerous donations made by individuals. Sometimes a simple photo, discovered upon the death of a relative, a gas mask relegated to the attic, but also a deportation diary or a transceiver parachuted from England to the resistance.

From the seemingly most banal, like these ration tickets produced in millions of copies, to the rarest, like the photo of Father Fleury in his clandestine office, each of these donations tells a story, individual and collective.

It is a part of this history that we invite you to discover today, through a selection of objects and documents from our collections. Each of them illustrates a moment or an aspect of these years of war.
This evocation, which starts from the beginnings of the war until the liberation of the towns of the department, does not show all the facets of the Occupation because the documents and objects given to us do not address them all. We did not want to add any from outside the museum.

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