Visits to the Maison d'Izieu

Visits to the Maison d'Izieu

A place of life that has become a place of national remembrance, the Maison d'Izieu offers visitors the opportunity to discover history and justice during guided tours of the house, by visiting its permanent and temporary exhibitions and numerous digital contents.

In this house opened by Sabine and Miron Zlatin, more than a hundred Jewish children were taken in from May 1943 to April 1944 in order to escape from anti-Semitic persecution. On the morning of 6 April 1944, the 44 children and the 7 educators who were there were rounded up and deported on the orders of K. Barbie, one of the heads of the Gestapo in Lyon. Only Léa Feldblum returned from Auschwitz.
Its environment, its history, the tragedy that made it known, the people who were and still are committed to keeping the values of the Republic alive make the strength of this place of singular beauty.
