Stèle commémorative

Stone marker called "Bard Marker", beside National highway 102, recalling that on August 16, 1944, the 31st Company FFI (French Interior Forces) engaged a German column in retreat, causing heavy losses. Twenty-two resistants died in the fighting. The marker lists forty-eight names of men who died in the last fighting for the Liberation of the region.

In 1946, the resistant Jean Brugerolles created a ceremony of commemoration in homage to the victims. Today, on the Sunday after August 15, a ceremony takes place at the Bard Marker in memory of the victims of the fighting for the Liberation of the Brioude region.
