Opening of a memorial garden in Ecouis in tribute to the memory of Buchenwald Camp Survivors

In 1945, after being liberated from Buchenwald concentration camp, 427 children and youth survivors were welcomed in a facility in Ecouis (Normandy region). Many years later, the place became an IME (Medico-Educative Institute) helping disabled children and teenagers. In tribute to the Buchenwald survivors, the IME team created a memorial garden with the help of several small groups of disabled youth.

Alongside the garden, an exhibition, introduced by historian Katy Hazan and highlighting the story of the children of Buchenwald, was opened on that beautiful and moving occasion.
