Carcassonne During World War 2

Carcassonne During World War 2

We will visit buildings, memorials, statues, and places that have a link back to World War 2 and I will share my love of the subject, bringing the history to life by telling you the personal stories about the people involved using many photographs from the archives.
The tour is fun, engaging, well-researched, and insightful, but never dry.
I look forward to journeying back in time with you!
We do not visit La Cité (The medieval castle)
We meet at the restaurant the Brasserie de 4 Temps.
