“A place of history and remembrance open to all, the Maison d’Izieu Memorial perpetuates the memory of the Jewish children and adults who found refuge there from May 1943 until the raid on 6th April 1944. Rooted in the present and focused on the future, it extends our thinking to crimes against humanity and the circumstances leading to them. By evoking the memory of the Jewish children and helpers of Izieu, the Memorial sets out to fight all forms of intolerance and racism.” (www.memorializieu.eu/)
Students will be given a tour of the Maison d’Izieu. Following the tour, each student will select one aspect of Maison d’Izieu to reflect upon. The subject selected can be a person, place or event.

Projects will be posted on a social media public forum, which will enable the host institution to engage student perceptions. This provides students with the opportunity to engage in a community dialogue in regards to their work. This should not impact student perspective or analysis. Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
