  • The monument "to the glory of French and allied nurses victims of their self-sacrifice" erected in Reims after World War I was erected by sculptor Denys Puech.

    The monument "to the glory of French and allied nurses victims of their self-sacrifice" erected in Reims after World War I was funded through an international subscription.
    Inaugurated in 1924, the monument of sculptor Denys Puech consists of a cylindrical column made of an octagonal plinth decorated with a frieze of scallop shells, on which are engraved the names of the allied nations of France during World War I. After World War II, a plaque was added to the base of the monument facing Rue Cérès, in memory of the 52 nurses and stretcher bearers of the Red Cross killed in the Allied bombing raid of 30 May 1944.
