Godart Square and the War Memorial (1921)

This little square is located near the Town Hall, and it bears the name of a couple of Resistance fighters who were killed during World War II. Henri and Hermance Godart were living in a farm, in the hamlet of Happegarbes. The main feature of the Godart Square is the War Memorial of the town. This imposing work was created by a sculptor from Maubeuge named Bertrand Boutée. The Memorial is made of three different pieces of stone, on which the names of 84 Landrecians who died in WW1 and WW2 are written. In front of these three elements, a statue represents a "poilu" (that is a French soldier of WW1) while he's assaulting the enemy lines.
