The Memorha Network brings together in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region places and areas linked to the Second World War and researchers in the humanities and the social sciences.

From its inception in 2011, it has striven to address the challenges resulting from the disappearance of eye-witnesses and the transmission to generations who have only a tenuous link to the Second World War. It has focused especially on added-value for memory tourism, on creating tools and on visit itineraries.

In 2016, Mémorha broadened its horizons to include all of the new Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region. In order to call attention to the large number of memory sites in this vast territory, Memorha has worked on the ground with museums, scholarly groups and researchers, to develop a website called Memospace.fr.
