Repressions and deportations in France and Europe 1939-1945

Article publié le 9 September 2021

In Nazi-occupied Europe, resistance and repression are presented through the lives of men and women who were members of the Resistance and deported from Loire-Inférieure, tried or not, and transported on convoys to the East. Railway workers and miners from the North are shown alongside deportees as well as repressed foreigners and maquisards from the west of France.

This exhibition deals with the first mass deportations of Jews in 1940-1941, even before the completion of the Auschwitz genocidal complex in the spring of 1942, the repression of the various forms of resistance and the control of the occupied populations.
