Bessières at Rippach *PIC*

You'll fin a lot about Bessières on my website.

The monument shown here was formerly in French barracks in Berlin, but was moved to Rippach in 1992.

It's on the wall of the inn Zum weissen Schwan, where Napoleon and Bessières had their last meeting on that fateful morning.

It's also there that his body was brought after his death.

On my website, you'll also find a picture of the unmarked spot where he was killed.

It looks lika an abandoned NVA depot

The house where his body was embalmed
