The Maison d’Izieu, memorial to the exterminated Jewish children

A place of remembrance, education and life in order to understand crimes against humanity and to act against all forms of discrimination.

Located in the South of Bugey, only 35 minutes from Chambéry and 1 hour from Lyon, Bourg-en-Bresse, Grenoble and Annecy, the Maison d’Izieu is a unique place that makes a complex contemporary history accessible to everyone: the Shoah in France during the Second World War; the birth of international justice and its continued presence to this day; the creation of remembrance of crimes against humanity.

Today, it is a warm, welcoming place that opens visitors’ eyes and that aims to deliver, by remembering the children and carers of the Izieu home, a universal message and to act against all forms of intolerance and racism.
