A Holocaust memorial is to be set up in southern France. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum joined with a French provincial government and a French Jewish group to set up the memorial. Participants at Monday’s signing ceremony at the museum included representatives of the Department of the Pyrenees-Orientales, a provincial authority, and the Centre De Documentation Juive Contemporain. The memorial and database will be built at the site of the Rivesaltes concentration camp in southern France. The database will cover information on internees in southern France during the war years.
