If you need a refresher in the evils of socialism, this monument to 27 French men who were murdered by the NAZIS will provide it. A letter from a man to his wife that by the time she receives it, he will be dead will...More

Three generation of us made this visit, the youngest being just 7 years old. We were all moved by the tragic events that took place here and it was an example of the barbarity of war and the price some paid; it was very informative...More

This was a short drive out of Chateaubriant but I'd highly recommend it. It left more questions than solved them for me. This is an abandoned quarry now made into a memorial for the 27 resistors to Nazism who were randomly killed to make up...More

They have now made the roadside parking much safer and prevented overtaking along this stretch. A short walk down to the old, disused quarry which is now a memorial cemetery.

Please see my comments included in my Chateau de Cateaubriand review. It's both peaceful and harrowing at the same time. Be careful if you opt for the information speakers if there are other visitors present. It can be very booming and upset the peace and...More
