82 convoys of human beings left France between 1942 and 1944, the Nazi objective being the annihilation of the Jews THE FINAL SOLUTION.
Convoy 6 left Pithiviers on 17 July 1942 for an unknown destination which turned out to be Auschwitz, suffering and death.
It carried 809 men and 119 women, among them, for the first time, 24 children and adolescents.
A first exhibition had been organised by our Association Memories of Convoy 6, which brought together nearly 400 people concerned.
The present exhibition was made possible thanks to grants from the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah, the Ministry of Defence (DMPA) and the permanent support of the Shoah Memorial.
