Chalvignac

Le laboratoire des résistants

Initially the design and engineering office while the dam was being built, the "lab" became an important place for the Resistance: it concealed a radio receiver where the resistants could hear messages from Radio London announcing Allied airdrops. A film inside the "lab" goes back over the construction of the dam and the history of the Resistance.
