The Maquis Bir Hacheim had Chasseneuil-sur-Bonnieure as the cradle. The surviving members including Colonel AndrĂ© Chabanne and Guy Pascaud had the idea, from the release of the Charente, a monument to the glory of resistance, intended to perpetuate the memory of the fallen volunteers “for freedom and greatness the fatherland “and particularly the 170 shot, deported and died in combat known or anonymous.
