Paris memorial to be unveiled in October

Post date: 29/05/2016

For French readers, here’s an article from Vie Nouvelle (May/June 2016) about the memorial to the International Brigades that will be unveiled at the Gare d’Austerlitz in Paris on 22 October this year. The memorial will take the form of a sculpture by Denis Monfleur and is being supported by ACER (the IBMT’s sister organisation in France), SNCF French railways and the CGT-Cheminots French rail union. The Gare d’Austerlitz was the main departure point for volunteers from around the world who travelled south through France by train before crossing the Pyrenees to join the International Brigades. The inauguration of the memorial is timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the formation of the International Brigades in October 1936.
