House of Remembrance

This model house, in the architectural style typical of the Alsace region of eastern France, stands outside the village hall in nearby Saint-Martial-sur-Isop.

This part of France lay just outside the area of direct German occupation during World War II, but the town of Seltz, on the Rhine in Alsace, was one of the first to be ‘annexed’. The plaque commemorates the refugees from Seltz who were given shelter in this locality after they fled the Nazis in 1939.
