Petit Futé's opinion on THE WOODLAND

Plate millesim 2022

The two sites (the memorial and the museum) strongly evoke one of the greatest war crimes committed on French soil during the Second World War. On 28 May 1940, a hundred or so British troops were tasked with delaying the advance of German troops while Operation Dynamo was being played out in Dunkirk. The British held out for 9 hours before surrendering. The 70 survivors were taken prisoner and locked up in a barn before being massacred. A lookout point, an orientation table and a stele allow you to better imagine this sad episode.
