Second World War[edit]

On 27 September 1944, 39 men from Étobon were shot by German troops against the Protestant church and 27 others taken as prisoners in retaliation for the death of a German general killed on 9 September by the French resistance in the nearby forest between Belverne and Lyoffans. The town received the Croix de Guerre 1939-1945 after the Second World War and the Legion of Honour in 1949.
