The Maison d'Izieu invites you to discover its permanent exhibition on the history of the Shoah in France during the Second World War, international justice and the construction of memory.
With the help of the new interactive tables, follow in the footsteps of the families and children of the colony of Izieu, the crimes against humanity and view extracts from the K trial. Barbie trial that took place in 1987 and which anchored the Izieu round-up in the French memory landscape.
THE TEMPORARY EXHIBITION FROM APRIL TO SEPTEMBER 2021
Discover the temporary exhibition dedicated to the first day of remembrance on 7 April 1946 at Izieu and Brégnier-Cordon in memory of the 44 children and 7 adults rounded up on 6 April 1944. This double-ceremony brought together more than 3000 people and witnessed a real surge of generosity throughout the region and beyond. 75 years later, the memorial pays tribute to all those who mobilised during the colony and after the round-up to ensure that memory is preserved and that the Maison d'Izieu becomes what it is today: a place of history, memory, education, life and the fight against all forms of discrimination.
VISIT THE HOUSE ACCOMPANIED BY A MEDIATOR
The house is the place where the children and their educators lived. Rather than a reconstitution, the museography favours an evocation of the atmosphere of the time of the colony and their disappeared presence. The house thus sketches the daily life of the colony through letters, drawings and portraits of the children.
Duration: 50 minutes visit accompanied by a mediator, by reservation only.
Recommended for children aged 13 and over.
FREE VISIT OF THE PERMANENT EXHIBITION
Beginning in 1940, the permanent exhibition presents, through numerous archival documents and digital applications, the history of the Shoah in France during the Second World War, the birth of international justice and its functioning up to the present day, as well as the construction of a memory of crimes against humanity. A space dedicated to international justice and the role of trials, in particular the K-trial. Barbie allows you to discover many video extracts.
A PLACE OF HISTORY AND NATIONAL MEMORY
The Maison d'Izieu, opened by Sabine and Miron Zlatin, received from May 1943 to April 1944 more than a hundred Jewish children to protect them from antisemitic persecution. On the morning of April 6, 1944, the 44 children and 7 educators who were there were rounded up and deported on the orders of K. Barbie, one of the leaders of the Gestapo in Lyon. With the exception of two teenagers and Miron Zlatin shot in Reval (now Tallinn) in Estonia, the group was deported to Auschwitz. Only one adult returned, Léa Feldblum, and all the others were gassed on arrival.
Tracked down and brought back to France by Beate and Serge Klarsfeld with the help of Fortunée Benguigui and Ita-Rosa Halaunbrenner, mothers of children rounded up in Izieu, K. Barbie is brought before French justice. With the mobilization of many witnesses, he was tried and sentenced in Lyon in 1987 for a crime against humanity.
The "Museum-Memorial of the children of Izieu" was inaugurated on 24 April 1994 by President François Mitterrand. In 2015, the Maison d'Izieu will see the creation of the Sabine and Miron Zlatin building, the overhaul of its permanent exhibition and the development of new digital devices. It is inaugurated on 6 April 2015 by President François Hollande. In addition to being a place of remembrance of the Shoah, the Maison d'Izieu intends to contribute to the defence of dignity, rights and justice, and to the fight against all forms of intolerance and racism.
