A Life of commitment at Paris Musée de l’Armée

The Musée de l’Armée in Paris offers an exhibition about the Companions of the Liberation called “Une Vie d’engagement”, running from January 30 to April 1, 2018.

WWII under a new light… This is what offers the Musée de l’Armée with the exhibition “Une Vie d’engagement: les compagnons de la Libération dans la Grande Guerre“ [A Life of Commitment: The Companions of the Liberation during the Great War] that runs from January 30 to April 1, 2018. An exhibition realized by the Musée de l’Armée and the Musée de l’ordre de la Libération as part of the centenary of the Great War and, as it name suggests it, takes visitors alongside the Companions of the Liberation.

Persons “from very varied, social, geographical, denominational and generational backgrounds” who – between 1940 and 1945 – found themselves in a fight and common values and of which the story is displayed here. The exhibition also aims at “showing a considerable part” of the companions “who actively participated” in the First World War.

They are 120 to follow the steps of the 1,038 companions of the Liberation, to take up arms and enroll in the Resistance, whether it’s in the ranks of the free France or in the “hard fights of clandestinity”. An entire life made of commitments for freedom.
