Stèle commémorative

Garden of the forty-four children of Izieu, in their memory and that of the six adults that were with them at the round-up of April 6, 1944. Held overnight at Montluc on their way to Drancy and then Auschwitz, forty-two of them were gassed immediately on their arrival, and two adolescents were shot in Estonia.

The place was chosen as being very close to the Centre d'Histoire de la Résistance et de la Déportation - Center for the HIstory of Resistance and Deportation; a marker on the site lists the names of the people arrested that day.
