The Unusual Surprises

Lyon Resistance

In the footsteps of Jean Moulin...

Lyon played an important role in the Resistance during the war years and the occupation.

You have to go to Caluire to be reminded of the arrest of Jean Moulin and the Resistance leaders on 21 June 1943.

The visit continues on foot through the "traboules" (narrow passages) of Lyon between Croix Rousse and Terreaux; you will have a better
understanding of the expression "army of shadows".

Finally, around Bellecour, you will find the underground press against the occupier.
