Daily Plan

Rivesaltes.001

Last stop: The maternity of Elna

Our last visit in France is a very special one. Thanks to the maternity of Elna many women refugees could give birth away from the horrible conditions in the concentration camps. After the visit we finally opened the suitcase! guess what we found inside…

Rivesaltes concentration camp

Since 1939, the Rivesaltes concentration camp held about 60.000 ‘undersirables’. 20.000 of them were Spaniards. Half of the Spaniards who passed through Rivesaltes ended up in Nazi concentration camps.
