Le 23 août 1944, après un coup de force des résistants faisant une trentaine de tués dans les rangs allemands, ces derniers reviennent au nombre de 300, sur 3 colonnes et encerclent Bûchères.
Dans le Château de Courgerennes, non loin d’ici, occupé par la famille Babeau, Mme Babeau sort pour parlementer, elle reçoit une balle en plein coeur. Son mari tente à son tour de parlementer dans leur langue, il s'effondre lui aussi. Mme Mauricette Tinet déjà blessée est tuée à son tour, puis les Allemands font sortir tous les occupants du Château et les exécutent au fur et à mesure.
