The Chateau de Chenonceaux in the Loire valley of France. This French Renaissance style chateau was built over the Cher River. During the First World War, the gallery of the chateau was used as a hospital for soldiers wounded in the trenches. During the Second World War, the Cher was the demarcation line that divided France. The square pavilion was in the occupied zone, but the gallery end of the building was further over the river and thus was in the free zone. Sgt. Arthur A. Bielenberg is at right. Photograph taken in May 1945.
