The original of the Bordeaux statue was taken down and melted by the occupying Germans in World War II. The replacement was put up in 2000 with a plaque added later to commemorate the victims of the September 11 attacks in the US. The statue and the Sept. 11 plaque are beside each other in a square near the city center.
