The slave streets of Le Havre

Memorial to those lost in WW1 from Le Havre and is by Pierre-Marie Poisson in 1922

There are two very different memorials in Le Havre; one for lives lost, the other for lives taken, for France. Our postcard shows a glorious memorial to the 6000 people of Le Havre who died in WW1.  They gave their lives for their country in conditions so awful we cannot imagine them.
