The Liberation of Nord–Pas-de-Calais

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Nord–Pas-de-Calais, La Coupole is presenting a temporary exhibition devoted to the year 1944 and the liberation of the region. Commissioned by La Coupole, and created by Laurent Thiery (a doctorate in history) and Laurent Seillier (professor of history), it is a well-documented account of the latest advances in research on major themes related to this topic: the bombings, the Ascq massacre, the Resistance, the military operations, repression, the activity of "the guardian angel of the V1" or the last "train from Loos". Covering the period from April 1944 to May 1945, iconography is at the heart of the exhibition. Exhibition from September 5, 2014 to August 31, 2015
