SPIP - Contrib

DVD available - April 1942, Hélène Berr, a 21-year-old student and a brilliant violonist, begins keeping a journal. She tells with great accuracy about the noose tightening: having to wear the yellow star, the Vel d’Hiv roundup, the daily consequences of the anti-Jewish law passed by the Vichy Government. Arrested with her parents, detained in the camp of Drancy and deported to Auchwitz on March 27th 1944, Hélène died in Bergen-Belsen at the age of 24, just a few days before the liberation of the camp by the British army in April 1945.
70 years after the start of the deportation of the Jews of France towards nazi extermination camps, the Shoah Memorial inaugurated in September 2012 at Drancy, a new space destined for the history and education of the period, opposite the Cité de la Muette. The project came about on the initiative and thanks to the financial support of the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah. The center’s mission is to present the history of the Drancy camp.
