On Tuesday 10 May at 6.30 pm, room Simone-Veil in Limoges, Vincent Brousse and Philippe Grandcoing will give a conference on “The case of the century in Limousin”, the Barataud affair.

Both have just published a book detailing the results of their latest research (The Barataud Affair – An Investigation in 1920s LimogesGesture editions, €30).
Charles Barataud, the enigmatic double murderer of the taxi driver Faure and the young Peynet, sentenced to lifelong deportation to the penal colony of Cayenne, had he acted alone or had he protected his accomplices by sinking in silence without hopeful but stubborn to the end ? What were the reasons for the murder of Pont de la Varogne? Wasn’t there something behind the tragedy but a sordid history of morals? What are still the gray areas in dramatic events that historians have patiently peeled off for more than 90 years?
Prices: €7 for members of the association, €5 for students, €9 for others.
