THINGS TO KNOW
You're on a historic Resistance site! The Oisans Maquis had to move its wounded, who were being treated in a makeshift hospital in a hotel in Alpe d'Huez, as the Germans advanced. They left on 11 August 1944 and arrived at l'Alpette 3 days later. After reaching the La Fare refuge and then the Rajon shelter on the banks of the lake of the same name, they were able to reach the valley thanks to the liberation of Grenoble by the Americans.
