Jean-Moulin Monument

Jean-Moulin was the Prefect of Chartres at the time of the German invasion. On 8th June 1940, he refused to sign a document, demanded by the occupying forces, which would have incriminated his French forces made up of Senegalese sharpshooters, then he tried to commit suicide. Pardoned in November by the Vichy government, he then became a member of the underground forces.
