Le Musee National de la Resistance (National Museum of the Resistance)

Place de la Résistance

This museum-cum-memorial commemorates the resistance to the Nazi occupation of Luxembourg and includes information on the fate of the country’s Jews.

 

Several other regional or local museums in Luxembourg are devoted to World War II resistance and forced labor.

 

A Holocaust Memorial near the Funfbrunnen (Cinqfontaines) Monastery near Troisvierges  in northern Luxembourg commemorates the site from which about 700 Jews were deported. After the Nazi invasion of 10 May 1940, Jews were taken here and held in the monastery. The site was called a ‘retirement’ or ‘old age home’ (Jüdische Altersheim), but in reality was a concentration camp where Jews were held until deportation further east. See PHOTO.
