From June 15th to 21th 1915, the Battle of Metzeral devastated the whole back part of the valley before the front settled down between the towns of Metzeral and Muhlbach. In July 1915, the townhall had been transformed into a first aid station after the walls of the basement had been reinforced. Ambulance Alpine welcomes both military and civilian casualties and serves as a propaganda tool for the health service of armies.
