La Coupole, located 5 km from Saint-Omer (Nord-Pas-de-Calais), is one of the most impressive remains of the Second World War in Europe. With its crushing mass, the underground nature of its installations, and the suffering of the forced laborers who built it, it is a symbolic place of Nazi oppression.
