The "miraculous" of the Lasveyras Bridge

What can young people remember today from the difficult and troubled times of the Resistance? How to explain simply to the new generations why every year hundreds of adults gather on the emblematic place of the Lasveyras Bridge or meet at the wall of the Shot of Périgueux? What do these humble stelae mark along the roads, which we often pass without seeing them? Paradoxically, the testimonies, sometimes contradictory, multiply while the last witnesses disappear. This document appeals to the direct memory of committed actors of the maquis in the Dordogne North, Captain Charles Sarlandie and André Cubertafon, survivor of the Lasveyras Bridge, both disappeared and whose aura is indisputable. It is accompanied by photos and summaries relating to the Second World War, both nationally and regionally. And this, in order to situate "for young people and their parents" these events and the scope of the action of the maquisards in a national and local context. At a time when voices are questioning the heroic action of this "Army of Shadows", it is imperative to affirm to the youth that the Resistance, with its many faces, saved our country from the Nazi apocalypse and fascism.
