MÉMORIAL NATIONAL DE LA PRISON DE MONTLUC
“The military prison of Montluc, located in front of the Montluc fort, opened its doors in 1921. Used during World War II, it became a civil prison beginning in 1947 and closed in 2009 as a women’s prison. As a military prison during the Vichy regime from 1940 to 1943, the Montluc Prison was requisitioned by the Nazi occupation beginning in January of 1943 until the 24th of August, 1944. The Montluc Prison became, for Lyon and the entire region, the principal gateway to deportation and executions. As the place of internment for more than 10,000 men, women, and children during the German occupation, including the children of Izieu, Jean Moulin, and Marc Bloch, the Memorial of Montluc Prison is an emblematic place of German repressive policies in the Lyon region.” (http://www.memorial-montluc.fr)

Projects will be posted on a 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.
