Centre d'histoire de la Résistance et de la Déportation

Interesting
Housed in the buildings of the military medical school, which from 1943 to 1944 was the Lyons base of the Gestapo, this centre focuses on the importance of Lyon in the Resistance movement and relevant events such as the Vénissieux roundup and the arrest of Jean Moulin in Caluire (June 1943). The drama of the deportation of the Jews and the Liberation of France is recalled through archive documents, posters, photos and eye-witness accounts. Also of interest is the reconstruction of an underground printing press.
