Memorial of the Résistance

Monument in Vassieux-en-Vercors

Located in the municipality of Vassieux-en-Vercors, in the Drome, the Memorial of the Resistance takes place in the heart of the Vercors, one of the highlights of the resistance of the Second World War. The museum aims to commemorate the July 1944 massacre, which saw the death of more than 200 civilians and 639 maquis by German troops.

The Memorial of the Resistance offers an original museography, with a staging through recordings, testimonies, models or still photographs.

Activities, educational workshops and guided tours are offered throughout the year to better understand this period of history. Thematic temporary exhibitions are also organized regularly.

At the entrance to the village of Vassieux, it is possible to discover the national necropolis, a military cemetery resistant to over 8000 m². Created in the late 1940s, it unveils 187 individual graves, as well as a German glider carcass and a remembrance room in honor of these fighters fallen on the battlefield.
