Mémorial Jean Moulin

On June 21, 1943, one of the most tragic events of World War II happened in Caluire et Cuire, in Doctor Dugoujon’s house.

Doctor Dugoujon’s house, which became the Jean Moulin Memorial in 2010, is registered as a National Historical Monument and as a Maison Des Illustres (Illustrious House). It has been restored so as to respect its original appearance, and is one of the most important and best-preserved remnants of the French Resistance in the Lyonnais region. It has been owned by the City of Caluire et Cuire since June 2014.
