Quartier des Martyrs in Tulle

    The memorial in Tulle to the 99 dead of 9 June 1944. This monument has been erected at the junction of the principal roads where the men were hung. It reads, "Martyrs quarter. To the memory of the victims of Nazism. 9 June 1944. The SS-Division Das Reich hung 99 hostages on the balconies and lampposts and 149 were deported to the death camps. 101 did not return". The road leading to the GIAT arms factory is to the left of this view and can also be seen in the drawing of the hangings made at the time.
