Museum of the Resistance and Deportation

So that we never forget

Lyon was a key bulwark of the French resistance against the Nazis who occupied the country from 1940 to 1944, and the Centre d'Histoire de la Résistance et de la Déportation on Avénue Berthelot occupies the onetime Gestapo barrack, both with the aim of documenting that barbaric period and making visitors reflect on larger issues. More than 3,000 square metres (32,300 sq. feet) are devoted to a variety of objects as well as testimonials and visual documentation of Nazi atrocities; particularly moving is the hall that lists the names of thousands of Jews and others who were sent to concentration camps.
