Saint-Gervais d’Auvergne

Musée de la Résistance François-Charles Maestracci

The Resistance Museum, which opened in May 1999 and was officially inaugurated in September 1999, was the idea of former Resistants Paul Roche and François-Charles Maestracci. It is housed in the SMADC in a room in the old hospital in Saint-Gervais and brings together authentic documents from the families of former resistants and various gifts. A private collection (Coutarel) also considerably enriched the museum. The museum was built as   a teaching tool, having been intended from the outset to inform youth and maintain the duty of remembrance.
