Martyrs Cemetery in Tulle
A view of the Martyrs Cemetery on the outskirts of Tulle to the west of the town on the N89 (the road to Brive la Gaillarde). The inscription reads, "To the Martyrs of Tulle, victims of Nazism 9th June 1944." followed by a partial list of names. All the victims are remembered on different plaques in this cemetery. The main memorial to the event is in town on the "Rue des Martyrs", which can also be seen in the drawing of the hangings made at the time.
