Plaque commémorative

Plaque in memory of Eugène Pons. When he first became a resistant, he started by forging identity papers and printing tracts. In 1942, he printed Notes and Letters of the Christian Witness, Franc-Tireur, Combat, and sundry other newspapers. On May 22, 1944, the Gestapo barged into his shop. He was released, as the search did not turn anything up. Charles Lang, who was also present, was detained. When Pons protested, he was arrested, interned at Montluc, and deported to Neuengamme, where he died of exhaustion in February 1945.
