Location and info

French Resistance Monument, 22 Rue de la 101E Airborne, 50480 Sainte-Marie-du-Mont

Located just a few yards to the south of the village of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont on the D913 road.

"Vive la France!"

This monument to the French Resistance in Normandy was unveiled in St. Marie-du-Mont on the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings- June 6, 1944.
The French Resistance played a pivotal role in the success of the Allied landings with their campaigns of sabotage. Many made the ultimate sacrifice.
The bronze monument features a Frenchman with a Sten gun, a young French woman using radio equipment, and a French boy on a bicycle returning from reconnaissance with a message to be coded.
