Exhibition « We are leaving tomorrow: Letters from internees, from the Vel d’Hiv to Auschwitz »

March 27 – December 22, 2022

Treasures of the families who entrusted them to the Memorial, these letters are the moving testimony of the humanity behind the names and numbers. Written at the Vel d’Hiv, Drancy, Loiret and other internment camps, these letters return, 80 years later, to these places of memory, to bear witness, through their authors, to the Holocaust in France. If some letters try to obtain a release from the administrative authorities or through relatives, others are marked by a feeling of farewell, as the departure approaches. After the war, the administrative letter will make its return, under the pen of the survivors who will try to find the trace of their missing family members.
