The Maison d’Izieu is open to pupils and students, from primary to university level, for straightforward or workshop-related visits, meetings/first-hand accounts or inter-museum courses.
« This house will be […] a living memorial,
embodying a challenge to what happened here.
It will be open to classes and groups of all origins, all orientations,
all educational backgrounds and all religions,
who will find a place for work, activities and exchange.
It will be a dynamic, vibrant place throughout the year.»
