At the heart of the Grand Site Occitanie and the City and Country of Art and History of Auch, capital of Gers and Gascony, the Museum of Resistance and Deportation was founded in 1954 by Louis Villanova, Marcel Daguzan and Louis Leroy.
It was subsequently inaugurated on October 5, 1975 by Mr. André Bord, Minister of Veterans Affairs.
It brings together objects, documents and all period pieces held by the former resistance fighters. This "memory" space ensures its conservation as well as perpetuates the memory of the resistance fight in the Gers department.
The gradual enrichment of the collections is the objective set by the museum association (created in 1994).

The exhibition rooms allow you to follow the evolution of the Resistance from its beginnings to the Liberation of the territory. It presents you with objects related to the war of 39/45 (helmets, guns, deportees' clothes, flags, sabotage, propaganda, period wireless equipment, mannequins in uniform ...). And you can observe photographs that trace this time.
A room is also devoted to the Deportation (objects, documents, drawings and memorial of the deportees from Gers).
