A Former Boys' School


This is the mayor's office, the mairie as it's called in French, of Jouy le Potier, near Orléans. It was formerly "Ecole Charles Rocher," The Charles Rocher School. If you look closely you can see the school name above the French flags.

Rocher was a public school teacher and a Resistance leader in the Libération-Nord. He was arrested by the Gestapo on October 15, 1943. He died in Bergen-Belsen on April 15, 1945.
