Remembrance Forest

Seurre, Chamblanc, Jallanges


150 trees have been planted in Chamblanc, Jallanges and Seurre in tribute to the liberation of 150 slaves. This forest was officially inaugurated to honour Anne-Marie Javouhey. This nun was a native of Chamblanc in the Val de Saône, and she liberated 150 slaves from Guiana in 1838, ten whole years before slavery was abolished. Each tree bears the name of one of these first slaves to be emancipated.

This remembrance forest is devoted to the liberated slaves of Mana, in Guiana, is a part of the tourist route known as the “Abolition of slavery and human rights route” (Maison de la Négritude de Champagney, Château de Joux in Pontarlier, Musée Schoelcher de Fessenheim, Maison Anne-Marie Javouhey de Chamblanc, etc.)
