Plaque commémorative

Plaque in homage to Jean Reverzy, a doctor who cared for resistants and who organized a disguise service so that workers could avoid the STO (Service de Travail Obligatoire Compulsory Work Service). He was turned in by an informer in 1943, arrested by the Germans, and incarcerated at Montluc. He was released on August 7, 1943, thanks to a Swiss interpreter; he left Lyon and became the chief doctor for the Allier Maquis.
