Our future Memorial Space: Former Baths of Souilhac

(Opening planned for 2025)

Projected program and outreach

These premises will be places of history and memory with cultural and educational purposes.

This vibrant space will permanently welcome diverse audiences of all nationalities, all generations, including schools, students, historians, and various associations.

The 200m² of this Memorial Space will be arranged for permanent and temporary exhibitions using archival documents, various iconographies, complemented by testimonials and audio-visual documents in French, German, and English, retracing the context and unfolding of the atrocities committed by Nazism and its murderous ideology.

The objective is also, through this tragedy, to encourage visitors to reflect on the Second World War, and more generally on the current resonances of this conflict and the processes that lead to such violence.
