Le Mur Des Justes: The Wall of the Righteous

Inspired recently by some poignant World War II Occupation movies like Un Secret and Au Revoir Les Enfants, I decided to share some photos of memorials that can only make us remember and reflect the tragic circumstances surrounding the German Occupation in France.

This wall bears the names of the righteous among the nations who, in France, rescued Jews during the second world war, sometimes at the risk of their own lives.
