6 de abril Izieu

Commemoration of the raid on the Colonie d’Izieu Colony, 6 April

80 years ago, in April 1943, Sabine and Miron Zlatin opened the “Colonie des enfants réfugiés de l’Hérault”. For almost a year, more than a hundred Jewish children from all over Europe were taken in at the Maison d’Izieu to escape racist and anti-Semitic persecution. Sixty-one of them were saved.
