Museum of National Resistance
Part of a network of 18 museums across France including sites in Bourges (Cher), Châteaubriant (Loire-Atlantique), Givors (Rhône), Montluçon (Allier), Nice (Alpes-Maritimes) and Varennes-Vauzelles (Nièvre), the Musée de la Résistance Nationale in Champigny-sur-Marne is home to a plethora of sources documenting the history of the French Resistance.
In the museum’s collections and Aimé Césaire learning areas spanning 1,000 m² and three floors, not only will you find all sorts of historical artefacts – the results of hundreds of donations by former Resistance fighters, their families, and remembrance organisations – but also an extensive collection of newspaper photographs. The museum’s archive is also sizeable, and includes the original manuscript of Paul Eluard’s poem “Liberté”, which he wrote in 1942.
Temporary exhibitions are staged alongside the permanent display as a way to both delve deeper into certain aspects of the period, and better understand the challenges we face today.
