Vendée’s War Memorial (The French Revolution)

Les Lucs Sur Boulogne, France

The memorial

The commemorative building was built by the agency Touring (Christine de Vichet and Philippe Noir), and gives tribute to the Victims of the " Infernal Columns " of the War of Vendée and more particularly to 564 victims killed by the column of General Cordellier killed in Lucs-sur-Boulogne on February 28th, 1794. The names of these victims were listed by the priest Barbedette who was then the priest of Big Luc. It also aims to be the memorial of all the victims of all the totalitarianisms, and in that sense Alexandre Soljenitsyne inaugurated it in 1993.

Contemplation through the memorial

As a compact and blind building, the Memorial is a place of contemplation. Everything is allusive, shades, starting with the buildings and the path that leads to it ...

While leaving the Memorial, the path of memory continues to the chapel of Little Luke, where are kept the memorial tables with the names of the victims of the massacre.
