  • Nothing mournful in this site that was just hosting and no extermination camp, yet its history and brought reflection are all too strong.

  • A place to understand and remember what happened there during WWII. Interesting historical building and also a wagon used for deportation.
  • Great museum - very informative and thought-provoking exhibits and great setting. An easy bus or bike trip from Aix and definitely worth it.
  • Very nice site in a former World War II internment camp. The first part which reminds all the events of this conflict is interesting but may seem long when we know it already well. Fortunately, many photos of time and testimonies provide more significant. But the best is yet to come with visit places which is accompanied by the history of this former factory has become "prison" and a very good description terrible living conditions so that the creative atmosphere that prevailed there anyway (many artists were locked up). We note also much reflection well brought on xenophobia, intolerance and rejection of the other makes rather than thread running throughout the visit and which is highlighted in examining the present a 3rd party.

  • Foi o primeiro campo de deportação de judeus que visitei. E achei a visita muito interessante. Os filmes contam muito bem a história do campo e de algumas famílias que passaram por lá. Além de contar a história do nazismo e falar sobre a participação da França e de outros países da Europa diante dos acontecimentos daquela época. Após a visita as instalações há uma sala para reflexões onde podemos realizar um paralelo entre os acontecimentos históricos e o que acontece no mundo agora. Muito interessante! Vale a pena a visita apesar de ter saído de lá bem triste.
  • 这是一个必须要看的! 那些展品内容非常丰富和令人深思的地方。 一个人不能帮我们换房的"故事"告诉我这次的旅行中。 教育是相当强大而有效的组件-尤其是在给定当前事件的新闻。 酒店的装修有什么前砖厂是非常显著的。
