1914-1918 : both sides, Armand, Wilhelm and others

a shared war, from Touraine to the North of Lake Constance

 

The Maison du Souvenir of Maillé, the Departmental Archives of Indre-et-Loire and the Cultural Service of the North District of Lake Constance (Bodenseekreis, Germany) join to evocate the fate of 6 soldiers - three French ones and three German - in the turmoil of World War I.

This exhibition, presented at the same time in France and in Germany, focuses more particularly on letters and cards sent by those men to their families. Through these correspondences, the initiators of this project wish to bring out the daily concerns of those “Tommies” and “Feldgrau”.

 

 

This exhibition, « Centenary » certified through the Centenary Partnership Program, will be presented at Kressbronn (Germany) from 6 July and the private view of its French part will be held at the Maison du Souvenir on 10 July.

A French and German exhibition catalog of more than 300 pages is for sale at the Maison du Souvenir (or by mail order selling in the « bookstore »).

From a war to the other one

Exhibition « 1919-1939 : from a war to the other one »

How did we go from the « Very Last One » to the most deadly conflict in History ?

From the difficult next days of the First World War to the rise of the dangers and the inevitable return to the war in 1939, this exhibition offers an overview on economic and politic landscape of this troubled interwar period.

It helps understand how the second conflict ensued from the peace treaty negociations and the new politic roles of the European countries after the first one. It shows also the opposition between the pacifism at any price in some countries and the rise of belligerent totalitarianism in others. It talks as well about the role of the economic crisis of 1929.

An exhibition by the Directorate for Commemoration, Defence Estate and Archives of the French Ministry of National Defence, to understand the inevitable walking towards the war and how this Second World War was a direct result of the first one.

Until 27 June 2014

at the Maison du Souvenir de Maillé !

Signs of Collaboration and Resistance

Exhibition : « Signs of Collaboration and Resistance »

From 2 October to 20 December - Extended until 30 December

From June 1940 to the liberation of Paris, the propaganda implemented by the occupying forces and the Vichy regime is omnipresent on all walls in France. In order not to let the monopoly of expression to the only Germans and the Pétain’s Governement, the Resistance tries to reply to this propaganda and starts a war of images and information.

 

28 exhibition panels composed this exhibition. They enable to show the way the German occupying forces and their French allies have marked the French territory with their symbols. They also point another kind of Resistance, less known, far away from those of the Resistant who, weapon in hand, attacks a convoy. Those which, despite derisory means and incurred risks, tries to reply with posters and tracts to make listen the voice of the Free France.

This war of communication is decoded and explained in « Signs of Collaboration and Resistance », presented at the Maison du Souvenir de Maillé from 2 October to 20 December 2013.

Book signing: Sylvie Pouliquen « The album of the Resistance: Women and men in the shadows »

On November 17th 2012, at the Maison du Souvenir, Sylvie Pouliquen presented her book. Daughter of a couple in Resistance, the author, who is also the director of the René Descartes museum chose to pay tribute to all those who were opposed to the Nazis and the Vichy regime.

 This book honors the courage and determination of these women and men in the shadows, all opinions mingled, who paid with their lives for the will to say «no». Into the 300 pages of this book are Resistant’s portraits, famous or fallen into oblivion. The purpose is to establish a chronicle of these multiple acts of resistance, from the publication of underground leaflets to armed fight. Hundreds of facts are thus highlighted.

The book is richly illustrated, including a large number of photographs of symbolic objects of the struggle against the occupier from the collections of regional museums.

Maillé, then and now

From July 6th till September 17th, 2012

“Where are the ruins? » This question comes up frequently at the desk of the Maison du Souvenir. When we explain to visitors that the village was completely rebuilt with the exception of a farm, they imagine that there are no longer visible traces of the massacre and destruction suffered by the village.

Through this exhibition of postcards, the Maison du Souvenir proposes to rediscover the village of Maillé from early twentieth century.

Comparison of these images with current photographs showing the same scene shows traces of the August 25th, 1944 on the houses of the village of Maillé : change in the architecture of buildings, roads widened, the village from yesterday and today is both very similar and very different.

Divided Touraine – the demarcation line

from April 1st to August 30th, 2011

The Maison du Souvenir of Maillé realized this exhibition in partnership with the Academic Inspection of the Indre et Loire and the General Council of the Indre et Loire.

During the second world war, the demarcation line, fixed by the armistice of June 22nd, 1940, is the limit between the free zone in the South and the occupied zone by the German army in the North of France. It cuts France in two through thirteen departments and on about 1 200 kilometers.

On November 11th, 1942, the German army invades the whole French territory.

On March 1st, 1943, the demarcation line is officially abolished.

The exhibition reviews the current researches, by finding the most precise plan of this arbitrary border. It redraws the daily life, the administrative complications to obtain of the famous pass …

It evokes the world of the smugglers who, in an non armed resistance, refused the laws of the occupant, often at the risk of their life.


The priest Henri Péan, the underestimated leader of the Resistance in Touraine and in Vienne

March 1st, 2011 – March 31st, 2011


The Maison du Souvenir realized this exhibition in partnership with the municipalities of Draché, la Celle Saint-Avant and Maillé. The first day took place on February 11th, 2011 in Draché, in the presence of Monseigneur François Du Sartel, general vicar of the diocese.

Priest of the parishes of Draché, la Celle Saint-Avant and Maillé from 1930, the priest Henri Péan was, under the occupation, the soul of the Resistance in the South of Touraine. From 1940, he is used to make crossthe demarcation line to more than 2 000 fugitives, among whom of numerous Jews and allied airmen. He also forms a network of information and action. At the head, he organizes parachutings, passes on major information in London, factory of false papers, …

Arrested by the Gestapo in February, 1944, he dies under the torture.

He gave evidence of a total self-abnegation and a real contempt of the danger, in the service of all those who, as him, fought against the occupant. Archives are rare. The priest was too modest and worried of serving, to have thought of leaving testimonies. Hero of the Resistance, he thus remains underestimated.

The exhibition coincides with the release of Jean – Gilles Dutardre’s eponymic book (in French only) in the editions Anovi, presented during the exhibition’s first day.
