In the aftermath of the armistice, the subject of a ruthless and bloody reaction by the German occupier who had gone through the arms of numerous civilians, including elderly women and children, and set fire to a large part of the town and infrastructure, he faced the most severe sufferings with pride and then, with great courage and a generous spirit of solidarity, he embarked on the difficult one reconstruction work.
