    C'est chaque fois un plaisir que de découvrir ce site abritant Castelnau-sur-l'Auvignon. Cet endroit nous fait entrer dans l'histoire de notre pays, la France, qui en son temps si difficile et tragique a su nous enseigner par son bel exemple les valeurs de patriotisme, de liberté et d'attachements aux principes nobles qui font la grandeur d'un peuple. Tout devoir de mémoire doit s'inspirer de la vie de ces femmes et de ces hommes qui ont combattu, résisté pour que nous vivions libres ensemble. Il faut donc compléter nos connaissances et aider nos jeunes générations à apprendre cette histoire qui n'est pas dans les manuels scolaires, mais qui est le témoin d'un vécu respectable. (je donne la note de 9,5/10)
