In 1944, the village was surrounded on July 17 by the Nazis. The maquisards of Buziet, mostly Spaniards and Catalans, live in Bager. The Germans after having gathered all the able-bodied men of the village decide to shoot twenty-two guerrillas. Only one who tried to escape managed to escape from the firing squad. A commemoration of this massacre takes place every year in July. During this day of July 17, two women from the village were also killed at close range in their respective homes. (from Wikipedia.fr)
