The Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération, known to visitors as the Museum of French Liberation, is a moving memorial to the heroic acts and sacrifice of groups and individuals who fought the Nazi occupation.
Opened thirty years ago inside the Invalides building, the Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération contains three Galleries and six halls, with over 150 showcases and 3,700, often very personal, artifacts and documents.
Exhibits include: a letter from a sixteen-year-old sentenced to death , pennants taken from the enemy in the battlefields of Africa and Europe; uniforms belonging to the Normandie-Niemen Fighter Squadron, original drawings made in the concentration camps; the saber that belonged to General Von Choltitz; locomotive parts that were blown up with plastic explosives by the train operators themselves, underground pamphlets and newspapers as well as thousands of other poignant objects.
The Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération is a fitting memorial and though it is tinged with the sadness of loss, is an ultimately uplifting monument to pride and courage.
