MUSEUM OF THE RESISTANCE AND DEPORTATION

The Museum uses photographs, documents and original objects to explore themes related to the Second World War: Nazism and its origins, the war and the Vichy regime, Resistance activities in Franche-Comté, France and Europe, and the Liberation.
The emphasis placed on the concentration camps and the «Final Solution» makes a visit to the Museum a particularly moving experience. Collections of paintings, drawings and sculptures produced in concentration camps and prisons accompany the factual displays. During the Occupation, 100 resistance fighters belonging to Franche-Comté groups were executed by firing squads in the Citadel between 1941 and 1944.
