Mrs. DENSOY, Chaumont

Testimonies collected in 1993 and 1994 by Patricia Lemaire and Robert Fergloute. Published with permission of Patricia Lemaire.

She welcomed in her parents’ stables her future in-laws who had spent a day and a night frozen in the cold… under a bridge!
A shell explosion killed four elderly people and injured three others. Another explosion killed a farm servant. Most of the houses were hit by projectiles, but few were completely destroyed.
