For the management of the Hindenburg Line museum and to promote the regional and local patrimony we created the HINDENBURG ASSOCIATION SENSEE-COJEUL, (ALHSC- non-profit association). It brings together a group of people of all ages, passioned or not by First World war, with WWI knolege or not of battles around Arras or larger, in Artois, but all with will and bring their contribution so that the flame of the memory does not blow out.
Of course, without funds nothing is possible. You can give us your financial support to help us continue our efforts in the fight against forgetting by an online donation.

You have a testimony about WWI or Hindenburg Line to transmit, an object, a writing, a photos, a postcard, an information or you do not know anything about it and you empty your attic or your house, before throwing everything away, it's simple, and you'll make a good action for free ...
Many people, and perhaps you do, still have a piece of history in their drawers, their attic, their basement, their cellar, their yard, to pass on, family or not, rare or not, in short! It is still objects, stories, documents, photos, war uniforms, simple scrap metal, a military helmet, a canteen, a personal object... that make up our history and our heritage. We must not lose them! And this is unfortunately too often the case when moving house, when a death occurs, when an estate is passed on, when the heirs, when there are any, are not interested, do not know about it, or are simply in a hurry, the house, the outbuildings, or the attic is emptied and thrown away, burned... Whereas a good deed is simple, easy, fast, free, and moreover... ecological: donate to the museum rather than burning, or at least, ask us! Who knows, you could save a testimony from oblivion, in addition to pleasing and participating in the local dynamism and culture. Or if you wish to keep the "witness" and just be informed about an object you don't know how to use and even be helped to keep it because you care, it's possible and it's also a mission of the Hindenburg Line Museum! We can advise you on the restoration of these military antiques, helmets, bayonets, leather or other equipment, uniforms, or personal objects of soldiers, but also documents, photos,...
You have a testimony of these sad events, you wish to ensure its perenniality, its preservation and its transmission, rather than the scrap metal, the dustbin or the pyre : ask us!
