In May 1943, Sabine and Miron Zlatin brought a dozen children to Izieu, in the Ain department of France, to protect them from anti-Semite persecution. In the end, over 100 children passed through this « colony of child refugees ».
On 6 April 1944, under the authority of Klaus Barbie, the Gestapo arrested everyone they found there: 44 children and 7 adults. All of them, with just one exception, were deported and executed.
Today, the Maison d'Izieu is a memorial to the victims. It is a place of history and memory. It is also a centre for reflection and research on crimes against humanity, and a beacon in the fight against intolerance and racism of every kind.
