Summary, translated by google:

The secret was becoming too heavy to bear. At 98, Edmond Réveil, a former resistance fighter during the German Occupation during the Second World War, revealed the atrocities of the war that weighed on his conscience. At the end of a general meeting of the National Association of Veterans, he testified for the first time to the execution of 47 German Wehrmacht soldiers and a French woman by his section of the Francs tireurs partisans (FTP ) from Meymac, in Corrèze, on June 12, 1944. That day, he was 18 years old. Today, he is the last resistance fighter still alive to have witnessed this massacre.
