About : Mont-Valérien memorial

First a mediaeval hermitage, Mont Valerien then became a popular place of pilgrimage during the 17th and 19th centuries. In the middle of the 19th century one of the forts forming part of the Parisian belt was built there. During the
Second World War, the site became the principal place where most of the executions ordered by the German authorities took place. From 1944 onwards, thanks to support from General de Gaulle and the work of the organisations
of the families of those who were shot, it became a memorial site. The "Mémorial de la France combattante" was built there in 1960 and in 2010 new museographic areas were opened.
