  • This monument No. 79 (Monument to the Memory of Students) is surrounded by two others, No. 78 (Theodore of Banville a Poet) and No. 80 (Henri Murger a writer). I simply think that this monument is misplaced in the luxembourg garden and I would have preferred to make a reversal between the monument of the painter Watteau No. 58 and this one or that this monument is located in a space with freedom illuminating the world (No. 50) In conclusion, I think it would be desirable to divide the garden into two parts, one romantic part and another part history of France. Another idea that comes to mind is to set up a romantic garden for the Luxembourg garden and a historic garden for the tile garden. That is my idea and it is only a personal opinion of course.

  • This bronze monument honours the students who participated in the Resistance against the German occupation from 1939 to 1945. It is located in the northern part of the Luxembourg Garden, close to the exit to the Luxembourg Palace. Worked by the sculptor Gaston Watkin (1916-2011) in 1956, in a stripped-down style and raw in appearance, this monument takes up the theme of the "Song of the Partisans" which is taken up in my title and is engraved on the base. One student, arms apart, looking decided, seems to arise, with at his feet another, who has just died. The wreaths of flowers, which can be seen at the foot of the monument, are laid every year during the commemoration which takes place between 20 and 30 May. The location, with a very rural setting, is perfectly justified since close to the Latin Quarter and Universities, Sorbonne Pantheon.
