They were more than a thousand, resistance fighters sentenced to death or hostages, shot at Mont Valérien. Written between the winter of 1940 and the spring of 1944, a few hours before their execution, their last letters are the expression of intimate lyrics, filled with hope, friendship and love for loved ones. Censored by the occupier or transmitted secretly, they reflect thepatriotic and fraternal values. These last writings are true witnesses of the commitment of these men in resistance.

and the rigor of others.

I forgive everyone”
