The Plaque

The plaque, one of two given by the government of India, commemorates the connection forged between the Indian soldiers and the villagers of Etobon and Chenebier. The second plaque is in Hindi. Translated from the French, the plaque reads:

"This plaque is given in gratitude by India to the citizens of Etobon and Chenebier, for the aid that they gave to Indian prisoners of war who escaped from the enemy in 1944-45, during the German occupation of France.

India grieves for the sons of these two villages who gave their lives for the common cause."
