The Museum of the Resistance and Deportation of Forges-les-Eaux offers a series of events throughout the summer. Things have already started with theexposure sure Gournay-en-Bray from 1940 to 1944 in partnership with the Community of municipalities of the 4 Rivers. An exhibition to discover until the fall.

Then a US camp will be organized on August 28 and 29 in close collaboration with the City of Forges-les-Eaux.
