“Vivid Reminder of History”

Musee Edmond-Michelet
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 May 2014

An excellent display,well researched of a member of the French Resistance Movement rendered more poignant as this was his family home and he himself was a prisoner of war at Dachau. It is a display to appeal to all echelons of society.

I chcecked on the web for opening times and it said that the museum was open in the mornings from 10 to 12.This has been changed so the museum now opens at 1.Nevertheless the attendqnt opened the museum for me for three quarters of an hour till 12.It is a small museum totally in French:Old fashioned with lots of photos and posters from the era.Even if like myself you do not speak French,there is still a lot to be gained by visiting this museum.Thanks to the kindness of the attendant this was not a wasted journey.

My wife, son and I, all British, visited this museum in the hope of learning more about the French Resistance during WW2 in this area. We already knew that, unlike much of France, such resistance activity had been considerable and from an early stage. But it was hard for us to get much information from the displays, even though my wife is a fluent French speaker. The problem is that it assumes a good knowledge of the region and of the regional and national politicians of the time. We visited Oradour-sur-Glane, near Limoges, the next day and had the same impression - lots about the appalling behaviour and actions of the Nazis, little about the French resistance to it. And yet we know there was some (quite a lot in the Correze).

Fascinating exhibition covering the period of the 1940-45 occupation, with special focus on the maquis and deportees from the Brive & Correze areas, and general details of life in France during that time. This gives the exhibition a "personal touch" which distinguishes it from a more general concentration camp subject museum.
