Charles de Gaulle Memorial

Located at the foot of the Cross of Lorraine in Colombey-les-deux-Églises, the Charles de Gaulle Memorial adds the finishing touch to a historic tour including General de Gaulle's family home and grave. It is more than a traditional presentation of the man famous for the call to resistance of 18th June 1940 or the first President of the Fifth Republic; it is a rendez-vous with 20th-century history and a chance to glimpse the great man's private life. The Memorial brings history alive through a wide range of media e.g films on giant screens, decors, multimedia terminals, sound bytes, written comments, dioramas, sound and audiovisual archive material etc. There is also a learning centre, a documentation centre, a shop and a café.
