At the Shoah Memorial

This travelling exhibition, consisting of 24 panels, is intended for students from the 3rd to the 12th grade. It looks at the way in which the spirit of the Third Republic and the role of the school in sharing republican and democratic values was shared in the Resistance. These humanist values, rejecting all forms of hatred and discrimination. Philosophically, but also in the actions of teachers and students. Among the documents presented, a handwritten letter from a Jewish student expelled from school, addressed to Marshal Pétain on 9 January 1942.
