Honour and promote.
In 2007, when ASPOLT was founded by a group of friends, the bet was a little crazy. The Laudrefang and Téting structures, 2 of the 53 forts on the Maginot Line in northeastern France, have been abandoned for several decades. Looted, they are buried by vegetation. These pieces of concrete and steel contain a treasure: the memory of hundreds of French soldiers who, in 1939-1940, spent part of their youth there and had to face fierce fighting against the German enemy.
A forgotten and yet so fascinating memory that ASPOLT volunteers are now working hard to revive by carrying out a relentless renovation and historical research.

Yesterday and today
For 12 years, ASPOLT has been renovating Block 3 of the Laudrefang Petit Ouvrage. This “Before/After” slide show summarizes the great work that has been done by the association’s volunteers.
Commemoration of the 80 years of the fights
On 4 and 5 July 2020, ASPOLT had planned to organise a public event to commemorate the 80 years of fighting and honour the memory of veterans through various activities. Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, this event has been postponed to 3 and 4 July 2021. Further details will be provided on this site and on our social networks.
