    The Wegner affair is one of the strangest of the Resistance in the Audomarois and the Pays de Lumbres in particular. Jean Willelm Wegner, a captain in the Todt Organisation, deserted while in the Boulonnais area and, in early summer 1943, he was picked up by the OCM group in Lumbres, to whom he provided information. He stayed with various families. Chased by the Gestapo, he managed to flee, which nevertheless led to a few arrests, followed by internment, deportation and even two executions. Captain Wegner's odyssey is part of the story of ordinary resistance fighters in the Pays de Lumbres, but also of the severe repression that affected them between October 1943 and June 1944.
