It is a small museum portraiting what happened on the beaches of Dunkirk. Read more in the book I wrote it's a light hearted read download the book on Kindle or via Kindle app on your phone. It's called Backpacking with Suitcases

We visited this museum/memorial on a gray rainy day which matched the seriousness of this site. The museum is very well done and English is provided in the commentaries. The fact that the 3rd section was devoted to prevention was extremely impressive. I highly recommend...More

This unique memorial site is a few miles away from the center of Aix but well worth the trouble to find it. The former tile factory housed three waves of detainees during the Second World War. The building itself is interesting, but what is really...More

I went to Camp des Milles at noon on a Saturday and it was closed despite its web site saying it is open daily. The hours are not even posted at the entrance: the sign is taped over.

We went as a family on a cold winter day. The place is freezing and renders the horrors lived there very real so go well covered. There has been a deep reflection in the pedagogical content of this memorial and there is a powerful sense...More

Easy to get to from aix, we came here one morning and ended up staying for hours. The exhibition is really interesting and thought provoking. Audio guide is excellent. I struggle with history but the tour explains things really well putting everything into context.
