Jean Moulin in Chartres, Eure-et-Loir (28)

Great hero of the French Resistance, Jean Moulin (1899-1943) has a very impressive mural here. He was briefly préfet of the département Eure-et-Loir before being forced into hiding from the Nazis. Several places locally honour Moulin, including one where a quotation from is paper, Premier Combat, is given.
