This is a memorial to the 200,000 people who were deported from Vichy France to the Nazi concentration camps during World War II, designed by French modernist architect Georges-Henri Pingusson. Pingusson intended that its long and narrow subterranean space convey a feeling of claustrophobia. The memorial's entrance is marked by two concrete blocks and inside is the tomb of an unknown deportee who was killed at the camp in Neustadt. Inside the chamber are 200,000 glass crystals to symbolize each of the deportees who died in the concentration camps. The inscription above the door says, “Forgive, but never forget.”
