Information

The Ligne de démarcation interpretation centre, Génelard, France, pays tribute to the history of World War II demarcation line which tore France apart during that period.

From June 1940 to November 1942, the North and West part of the territory (called Occupied Zone) was occupied by the German army and the South zone (also know as “Free Zone”) was under control of the Vichy government.

The town of Génelard was situated on the line and there was a German checkpoint where people had to show their pass so as to cross the inner border.

The permanent exhibition features many documents (maps, pictures, archives) so as to show the reality of this frontier, its effects on everyday life, the surveillance, its impact on the activities of the Resistance or the clandestine attempts made to cross it. The texts of permanent exhibition are translated into English.

Every season, the interpretive centre proposes temporary exhibitions or conferences, mostly on the Second World War period.

A library and a bookshop can also be found there.
