President Emmanuel Macron shed no tears as the coffin of the last Companion of the Liberation, Hubert Germain, arrived at the Mont-Valérien memorial.
While the famous resistance fighters joined the last unoccupied vault of the crypt, the Head of State welcomed the coffin for a final tribute, in accordance with the wishes of the deceased and General de Gaulle.
And as the remains of this Resistance champion approached the sound of the “song of the Partisans,” the President of the Republic shed a few tears.
A rare sequence for a President of the Republic, who is accustomed to solemn and solemn ceremonies.
Following the placement of Hubert Germain coffin draped in the tricolour flag in the crypt, Emmanuel Macron meditated for a few moments before placing a Lorraine cross designed with wood from the framework of Notre-Dame-de-Paris cathedral, in accordance with the deceased’s wishes.
Hubert Germain died a month ago.
