Because the territory of the Cub is dotted with remnants of World War II ( bunkers , entrenched camps , …) and because we had the opportunity to meet different people who lived during the war , we wanted to reflect on ” forgotten History. ” We wish to collect their stories and thus recover some of the history of the Second World War , unknown to the general public and especially the younger generations , working on the Compulsory Work Service . These reports , after posting (s), shall be deposited in the departmental archives .
The Gruntvig file will implement this project. The association has always wanted to create links with other community radios, it proposes actions between radio planning , actions and programs are relayed by various networks of independent radio stations in the region. RIG also helped in the creation of different free radios in France and abroad . His various experiences with other radios have learned a lot and allowed to think and carry out new projects . European partnerships can enrich themselves culturally and provide listeners with high-quality programs .
