Corrézien Memorial to the Resistance and Deportation 1940-1944

With its rugged terrain and forest mantle, Corrèze, thanks to the support of the population, established itself as a land of resistance as early as 1940. In 1943, the Armée Secrète (AS) and the Francs-Tireurs et Partisans Français (FTPF) engaged in armed struggle against the forces of collaboration and the Nazi occupiers. The Corrèze suffers terrible reprisals and pays a heavy price, particularly at Tulle on June 9, 1944. Fighting intensifies throughout the summer of 1944. The German garrisons at Brive and Tulle capitulated on August 15 and 16. The department was definitively liberated on the 21st, after the fighting at Egletons and Ussel.

In Corrèze, an estimated 800 people were killed, resistance fighters and civilians, during the occupation period. Over 600 Corréziens - resistance fighters, political activists or hostages - were deported to concentration camps. In addition, around 400 men, women and children, mostly Jews, were deported to extermination camps for racial or religious reasons.
