Do you know how many memorial stones there are in the village?
Can you decipher the symbols on the war memorial?
What material was chosen for their construction?

War memorials, steles, commemorative plaques... Our daily environment is dotted with many reminders of past armed conflicts (the two world wars, the Algerian war).
While placing these monuments in their context and evoking the impact of armed conflicts on our territory, let us explore the village to discover them.

A "virtual meeting" is scheduled for Saturday 21 May at
17H. A slide show will be shown and will offer a panorama of these
funerary monuments.
It will be broadcast free of charge and accessible to all on the social networks of the
abbey website (Facebook : @abbaye.abondance and Instagram :
abbaye.abondance) as well as on the Abbey's Youtube channel
