    Thank you Michel. The monument is indeed a fitting tribute to such a pathetic waste of five young lives - cut so horribly short in the worst possible manner. A credit to the first district of Paris.

    Arrested by the police of Vichy, accomplice of the Nazi occupation, over 11,000 children were deported to France from 1942 to 1944 and murdered in Auschwitz because they were born Jews
