Musée de la Résistance et de la Déportation

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.
