WELCOME AT Hindenburg ligne museum!

     The Great War in the south of Artois and more particularly the Hindenburg Line ("Siegfried Stellung", "Hindenburg Line" or "Grande Trenchée") in the ARRAS sector (between the Arras - Cambrai road in the north and Bullecourt in the south) will be subjects largely covered by the Hindenburg Line Museum. It also refers to the destroyed villages and their inhabitants as well as the fighters, whether famous or not, as well as to prisoners and families. Through numerous objects, maps, images or documents, we will evoke the great military actions such as the Battle of Arras, the Battle of the Scarpe, the 100 Days of Canada (Battle of the 100 Days), or the Spring Offensive (Battle of the Kaiser - Operation Michael), but not only those less well known, on a completely different scale but which have brought their share of horror such as the fighting at Fontaine Les Croisilles, the Battle of Bullecourt, the Battle of Chérisy or that of Croisilles...

 

     Discover the history of this sector, our actions and our projects so that all this does not fall back into oblivion ...

 

     Location: South-East of Arras, valleys of La Sensée and Cojeul in the triangle Arras - Bapaume - Cambrai

"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."

 

Extract from "for the fallen" by Laurence Binyon
