Photographer's Note

Place Montaut is a square in the historic centre of the French city of Bayonne close to the cathedral. It is named for a family of Bayonne notables, who built a house close by in 1529.

The monument, which stands in the centre of the square commemorates a number of events in the history of the city, notably the deaths of deportees who died in Nazi hands during the second world war and the deaths of two young Bayonne men who died in the revolution of July 1830. On one face of the monument there is an inscription - " Les révolutions des justes sont le châtiment des mauvais rois. ". This roughly translates as "Revolutions of the righteous are the punishment of evil kings."

In the background stands the Chapel of the Daughters of the Cross.
