Colonel Fabien Resistance

Not all survived. V. Antonenko, heroically died April 30, 1945, the day liberation of the island from the Nazis. Initially, resistance (or passive resistance), since the fall of France before the German attack on the Soviet Union was more than modest: the spread of radiosvodok from the front and leaflets, sabotage and subversion in enterprises and military installations. The second period lasted from 22 June 1941 to November 1942, when he was defeated at Stalingrad, the 6th Army Paulus. Important events have shaken Africa and south France. In North Africa, Morocco and landed allies, the Germans occupied southern France (Free Zone) and landed troops in Tunisia.

During this period the French sailors Patriots sunk in Toulon, a French military fleet so that it is not got to the Germans. War on the Eastern Front against the Soviet Union, Hitler forced France to withdraw from the 20 divisions, allowing the patriots to intensify the fight against the invaders. But the Nazis in Paris feel secure under the protection of petenovskoy gendarmerie and police, the Gestapo and the garrison units. To intensify the armed struggle in the French capital, Colonel Fabien Resistance (Pierre Georges) in a subway station Barbes – Rosheshuar shot a German officer. This was the signal for the Patriots to an open fight against the invaders, awakened from their lethargy after the disgraceful defeat and raised to fight. Response to the German command began a brutal campaign of repression and executions of hostages. Thus, near Paris, the hill of Mont Valerien were shot more than 4,500 hostages and members of the Resistance.
