HD photographs of Wall of the Deportation inside Eglise Saint-Roch - Page 1141

While we were within the Eglise Saint-Roch, located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, we took these high definition photos showing a memorial plaque called the Wall of the Deportation, dedicated to those that died in concentration camps during World War II.

Wall Of The Deportation Sculpture Inside Compassion Chapel At Eglise Saint-Roch

This first HD photo shows a plaque dedicated to those that lost their lives at concentration camps during World War II, and at the very top you can see a gilded embossed statement or commemoration that reads in English, Here the ashes recall the deportee victims of the Nazis 1940 - 1945.

And it was actually in 1957 that the Wall of the Deportation was initiated within the Eglise Saint-Roch by Genevieve de Gaulle-Anthonioz, who was a French Resistance fighter, but she was captured and imprisoned, then sent to the Ravensbruck Concentration Camp.

However, Genevevieve de Gaulle-Anthonioz was kept alive as a possible exchange prisoner, due to the fact that her Uncle was General Charles de Gaulle, eventually being released in April 1945, and after this became a member then president of the Association of Deportees and Internees of the Resistance, filing lawsuits against Nazi war criminals, which also led to her writing a book about her experiences at Ravensbruck.

Wall Of The Deportation Sculpture By Genevieve De Gaulle-Anthonioz

So here you can see a closer view of the Wall of the Deportation memorial plaque with the central cross and the ribbon in the three colours of the French flag, surrounded by the names of the concentration camps and how many people lost their lives at each one, such as Auschwitz that saw 140,000 martyrs.

But this is not just any old plaque, because with the assistance of Konrad Adenauer, who was the Chancellor of Germany after World War II from 1949 through to 1963, soil and ashes were collected from each one of these concentration camps and placed behind the stone plaque in the Saint-Roch Church in Paris.
