Political poster of the French resistance group Manouchian network. In February 1944, this poster appeared all over France. The Gestapo executed these men. Their leader was an Armenian gentleman named Missak Manouchian. The poster was meant to make an example of these ten partisans whose faces appear on this fiche. According to the book "Jewish Resistance in France" by Amy Latour, not long after the appearance of the poster, people began to deface the fiche by writing across the face "THEY DIED FOR FRANCE."
