Centre d'Histoire de la Résistance et de la Déportation, Lyon: All year

Poignantly located in former Gestapo headquarters, the CHRD is dedicated to Lyon's important role in the French Resistance during World War II.

This museum is dedicated to the vital role which Lyon played in the French Resistance against the Germans during WWII. The museum’s collection, that includes everyday objects  from the Resistance such as sound recordings of deportees, and handmade objects found in concentration camps, is poignantly located in the former headquarters of Gestapo commander Klaus Barbie (nicknamed the ‘Butcher of Lyon’ because of the horrific torture methods he used on French prisoners). Using objects, photographs and testimonies, the museum describes a dark period in history but also highlights the feeling of perseverance, patriotism and resistance during this difficult time.
