liberation of Biffontaine and Brouvelieures
#1

Hello my Friends,

 

I hope all is fine for you all.

 

Yesterday was a great day too. It was the commemoration of the liberation of the area of Biffontaine and Brouvelieures. There was a lot of V.I.P for this commomoration, at the place named 'La borne N°6' or if you want where to lost bn was. Biffontaine had the big honor to have the visit of two persons of Italia, they live at Monté Cassino. At Monté Cassino, there is a street named ' Street of Biffontaine'. In the photos I send you, you will see the commemoration in the forest de Champ, but also, the commemoration for a new monument, in the village of Biffontaine, near the Church. This wonderful monument is named 'The Prayer', against all the horror of the wars.

 

Among the V.I.P, there was :

M Cantal, Prefect of the area of Saint Dié,

M Cherpion, Deputy,

M Langlois, General consil of the area of Bruyeres,

M Henry, mayor of Biffontaine,

M Blangy, mayor of Bruyeres,

M Cavaness, of the american cemetery of Epinal,

M Bianchetti, who is the creator of this monument. (he is also the creator of the monument of the lost bn).

And other people and associations.

 

This monument is a great message of peace, and the commemoration was very moving.

 

You will find too, more photos and information in this wonderful website :

I wish you all a wonderful day,

and take care,
