War memorial to St Martin d'Estreaux

Monument to the dead in 1922 with sculptures of Jean-Baptiste Picaud, Rouen sculptor. The monument has two special features: there are photographs on email of the disappeared, as well as a long text pacifist, serious in 1928 on the initiative of Mayor Pierre Monot. This text condemns the war and its horrors: 'Cursed be the war and its authors'. Long poorly accepted by the population, the monument only opened in 1947.
