Description

80 years ago, in May and June 1940, the French were forced to flee along roads to the West and South as the Germans advanced. This so-called exodus concerned 8 million people and three quarters of Parisians. Spring was complete chaos with congested roads, abandoned businesses and distraught families. A French tragedy, the focus of an exhibition from 27 February to 13 December 2020 at the Musée de la Libération – Musée du Général Leclerc – Musée Jean Moulin. Talks and readings of texts run alongside the event.

Musée de la Libération de Paris - Musée du général Leclerc - Musée Jean Moulin

The Musée de la Libération de Paris - Musée du Général Leclerc - Musée Jean Moulin was inaugurated on 25 August 2019, the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris.
Housed in an 18th century heritage site, the entirely restored and redesigned Pavillons Ledoux on Place Denfert-Rochereau, as well as in the neighbouring 19th century building, this new history museum has been created to teach the public about a shared history: that of two historic figures from the Second World War, Philippe Leclerc de Hauteclocque and Jean Moulin, and that of the Liberation of Paris.
The move to the Denfert-Rochereau site means visitors can immerse themselves in this history by visiting the command station of Colonel Rol-Tanguy, head of the Paris branch of the French Forces of the Interior, installed 20 m underground during the week of the Liberation of Paris. In order to reach and inform a wide audience, access to the museum's collections is free.
