The Quarry of the Fusillés

A region which played an active part during the Second World War

An emblematic site of the Resistance and of the Second World War, 27 hostages were shot in this quarry by the German occupier on October 22, 1941, including Guy Môquet (17), in retaliation for the attack by Feldkommandant Hotz in Nantes. Today, a memorial trail pays homage to the 27 people shot at Châteaubriant, such as the Antoine Rohal monument, which overlooks the listed historic site.
