Complete description of site

The Resistance and Deportation Memorial opened  in 1999 to encourage values held dear by its founders, Resistants and deported persons: commitment, Living-Together, and the struggle against discrimination and every form of extremism.

After its opening and the passing of the last witnesses, the Memorial has taken on a genuine legitimacy on the period of World War II with help from Université Jean Monnet and the Municipal and Départemental Archives.

In a constantly-evolving world, and taking account of the interests of youth, it has opened onto the problems of today’s world, putting current events in perspective and calling attention to the lurking danger of excesses.

A place for sharing and culture, the Resistance and Deportation Memorial calls upon numerous partnerships to encourage reflection and citizen involvement in all its projects.
