The Sainte Anne d'Auray communal cemetery houses a monument in memory of the 4 Resistance fighters shot on August 5, 1944:

Abbé Le Barth,
Abbé Allanic,
Mr Brianceau,
Mr Le Louer

While the abbés were on a mission to submit a surrender request to the German troops present at Saint-Anne, reinforcements from Pluneret provoked fighting between Germans and Resistance fighters.

In retaliation, Wehrmacht soldiers executed the aforementioned.
