This plaque is in honor of the sailors and fishers of Les Sables who
worked for freedom in World War II. Les Sables was occupied by
German forces in those days, but the sailors on the sea were a force unto
themselves. Many of the supplies and vital information for the French
Resistance came through here on fishing boats that passed right under the eyes
of Hitler's SS troups. The Cross of Lorraine here is the traditional
secret symbol of the Resistance to Fascism and the Nazi's.
