SEARCHING FOR TRACES OF GURS
From January 2020 to December 2022, as part of the “Jugend Erinnert” (Youth Remembers) program, the Federal Republic of Germany is supporting the Blaue Haus project for German and Polish students titled "Breisach/ Oświęcim: Searching for traces of Gurs, and Multiplier-Training Courses on the Gurs Internment Camp in Southern France." The project focuses on the fate of the Breisach Jews who were deported initially to southern France in October 1940 and then, beginning in August 1942, sent on via Drancy near Paris to Auschwitz. Only a few of those who were deported to Gurs survived. The project group investigates their stories as well as those of the Breisach Jews who died in the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp.
