“Our announcement of the reopening has been suspended. Thierry Hubscher is the director of the Verdun memorial in Fleury-devant-Douaumont and his teams are more than active. In addition to the possibility of a virtual visit,” he added, “We are in the process of completing the installation of a temporary exhibition.”
An exhibition planned for last year, but couldn’t see daylight due to being confined. Baptized: “We do not pass!” Fortifications, from the Séré de Rivières to the Maginot Line, the exhibition is scheduled to run until September 26 in now air-conditioned space.A webinar on fortifications in Europe is also planned from 1870 to 1918.
The memorial took advantage of this lockdown period “to develop a virtual reality process to discover landscapes as they were in 1916 while respecting historical reality.” If the place’s glazed attic allows you to appreciate the landscape, then the appropriate helmets will allow you to better understand the history of this moment from the Great War. Planner innovation for June.
Finally, on the ground floor, a common area that combines the store, library and cafeteria has been nearly completed and will be accessible without a ticket.
