“Les Compagnons”: Musée de l’Ordre de la Libération – Sunday October 13, 2019 at 2:45 pm

This is an unusual FREE visit of this little known museum, located within the Hôtel des Invalides. The “staged tour is led by actors who embody some of the greatest figures in the history of  The French Résistance. 


The Order of Liberation (in French: Ordre de la Libération) is a French decoration which was awarded to heroes of the Liberation of France during World War II. It is a very high honor, second only after the Légion d’Honneur (Legion of Honor). Very few people (1038), military units and communes (5) received this decoration, and only for their deeds during World War II. The Order of Liberation was established by General de Gaulle, in order n° 7, signed in Brazzaville on November 16, 1940. The object of the Order was to “reward people, from military or civilian communities, who have distinguished themselves in the task of liberating France and her Empire”.
