A la mémoire
de Jean PACTON, dit "Ardent". Ici dès 1941,
il créa l'un des premiers groupes de résistants de l'Indre,
appelé groupe des collégiens de La Châtre.
Il est mort pour la France le 22 Juillet 1944.


Le 6 Juin 1944, parallèlement au débarquement des forces alliées en Normandie l'état-major de la résistance décrétait : "L'insurrection nationnale". Soutenus par une large majorité de la population, notamment rurale, environ 600 000 hommes et femmes rejoignirent les forces armées de la résistance (les maquis). Le département de l'Indre compta 18 000 combattants volontaires. Plus de 560 laissèrent leur vie dans les combats de l'été 1944 pour chasser l'occupant nazi et ses complices et rétablir la République.

The Department of Indre counted 18,000 volunteer fighters. More than 560 lost their lives in the fighting of the summer of 1944 to drive out the Nazi occupiers and their accomplices and restore the Republic.
