Signboard outlining Pierre Carton's itinerary. A volunteer in the Police network of the Resistance, he was a "mailbox" for the Cantal maquis between 1942 and June 1944, and alerted a large number of people that they risked arrest, as well as liasoning between maquis and men that were evading the STO (Compulsory Work Service). He was arrested on June 11, 1944 during the fighting at Mont-Mouchet, imprisoned, tortured and deported to the Struthof camp at Dachau, and Allach. When he was freed by American troops on April 29, 1945, he weighed barely 50kg. After the Liberation, he returned to his employment in the Police.
