    Presentation The association “Morvan Terre de Résistances – ARORM” manages the Resistance Museum, the Memorial Paths, and the Dun-les-Places memorial. It was founded in 1981 by historians at the University of Burgundy and former Resistance fighters from the Morvan with a view to setting up a Resistance museum. The success of its work saw the scope of its activities widen. ARORM (Association for Research into the Occupation and Resistance in the Morvan) became ‘Morvan Terre de Résistances – ARORM’ in December 2014, bringing together different groups working in the area of the Second World War, notably the Dun-les-Places Memorial Association.
