Americans in Lot

Americans in the Lot, an association under French law, (une association loi de 1901) was founded in 2010 by Susanna Stevens and Dana Facaros, two US nationals living locally. It aims to promote Franco-American relations by carrying out bicultural projects.

It enjoyed some funding assistance from the OSS Society for its Cuzance plaque project. (See Commemorating OSS Group Emily and the Cuzance maquis)

It is open to all Americans living in the departement. Its first project for which the American Embassy in Paris kindly provided funds, was to translate the mission statement of OG Emily into French for the Museum of Resistance and Deportation in Cahors, realizing the importance of preserving for future generations this local heritage that will otherwise be lost.

With this in mind it co-ordinated efforts to establish a lasting memorial to the collaborative efforts of the Americans and French in the World War II fight against the occupying forces.

One particular act of sabotage (the blowing up of the Viaduc de La Motte near Souillac) seemed the perfect choice.
