AND THE PERMANENT EXHIBITION
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 or Annecy, the Maison d’Izieu is a unique place that makes a complex contemporary history accessible to all: the Shoah in France during the Second World War; the birth of an international justice system and how it has functioned up to the present day; the construction of a memory of crimes against humanity.
Today, it is a place of welcome and vigilance that intends to deliver a universal message and act against all forms of intolerance and racism.
