On September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland. On September 2, the 125th Infantry Regiment and the Polish General Staff moved to Pignerolle, and the Polish government-in-exile took up residence in various luxury hotels in Angers. Angers and Saint-Barthélemy d'Anjou jointly became the capital of Polish resistance until June 1940. Since then, there have been strong links between Anjou and Poland, leading to the creation of an association for exchanges and cooperation between Saint-Barthélemy d'Anjou and the Polish town of Gabin, which led to a visit by young Poles. In 1943, the German navy requisitioned the Château de Pignerolle for its communications center. Six hundred workers built eleven blockhouses and barracks for almost a thousand German sailors. The Germans left the site in 1944, leaving behind a devastated park and burning blockhouses.
