The Holocaust The Concentration Camps

Located three miles northeast of Paris, France

Drancy was a terrible transit camp for Jews who were often transported to the Auschwitz death camps in the boxcars of trains. Those transported were placed in unfinished apartment buildings between the years of 1941 and 1944.


**Visions of Drancy 2007**


"The French Republic...In homage to the victims of the persecution by racist and anti-Semites and of the crimes against humanity that were committed under the authority of the so-called "Government of the State of France," 1940-1944...
Never forget..."


"Here, the French state of Vichy interned many thousands of Jews,  tsiganes?, and strangers, deported to the Nazi camps. Almost all found death there."
