The Former Deportation Station of Bobigny is open to the Public


The memorial site for the historic Bobigny deportation station in the Paris area, is now open for visitors since mid-January

The former station is one of the few deportation sites that has been kept almost unchanged since the second world war.

As today January 27th marks the 78th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a commemoration for the international day in memory of the victims of the Holocaust and the prevention of crimes against humanity will be held on the site.

The official inauguration is planned on July 18th, anniversary date for the first deportation convoy that left from the station of Bobigny.

OKRA has been honored to be able to lead the design of the scenographic, landscape and architectural renovation of the memorial site for the future generations.
