Description

Initially intended as a low-income housing complex, the city of La Muette became an internment, assembly and retaliation camp during the Second World War. A main place of deportation, it is from Drancy that a very large part of the French Jews was sent to the Nazi concentration camps.

Today, the Memorial and the Memorial Wagon pay tribute to the 6 million Jews murdered during the conflict. Complementary to the Memorial of the Shoah of Paris, the Drancy Memorial is a place of transmission and education that works to preserve the Holocaust remembrance. The permanent exhibition retraces the history, functioning of the camp and the daily life of the 63,000 Jews from France who passed through the camp, using video testimonies, historical documents and period photographs. The Memorial also schedules temporary exhibitions.

On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris, relive the history of the Second World War in Paris Region.
