The members of the Teaching Department, along with “relay teachers” from the Belley secondary school, help teachers and accompanying adults prepare their visit to the Maison d’Izieu and support their educational projects.
They can make suggestions on preparing young visitors for the Memorial: teaching the chronological milestones of the period, presenting main concepts and discussing civic issues specific to this place of remembrance.
Depending on the project, they may have direct involvement with the classes or groups in their establishments.
A basic visit takes around two hours.
Teachers oversee the basic visit, which involves the Barn and the House. It includes the film Avec les enfants ? (With the children?) and exclusive extracts from the Klaus Barbie trial that relate to the Izieu raid. Students are divided into groups of 30 maximum.
Maison d’Izieu guides present the site and its history, and remain available throughout the visit.
Visits including a workshop and speakers require a full day.
They are organised and conducted by the Maison d’Izieu Teaching Department based on a specific educational project.
To ensure the best conditions for each group, the number of people visiting the site at any one time is limited.
To help teachers prepare their visit, an educational booklet describing the site and all its resources can be purchased at the entry desk.
As part of heritage coursework or artistic and cultural projects, groups or classes of young people may stay at the Maison d’Izieu for a period lasting from two days to one week.
Lodging is provided by the Maison des Isles du Rhône, located in the neighbouring village of Brégnier-Cordon. This hostel provides accommodation for groups of young people and adults consisting of rooms only or full board. Educational programmes and activities centred on the environment and sustainable development are offered throughout the year.
