“Tucked Away Unique Exhibit ~ Not to be Missed”

Centre Historique de la Resistance et de la Deportation
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 October 2014

The International Shoe Museum complex houses this unique exhibit. A wonderful collection of photographic documentary of the WW II tragedies that affected France and her citizens. The rise of Nazism and subsequent war leading to the occupation of France is portrayed. Most of the exhibit focuses on the French resistance, particularly that which took place in the local area. The deportation section of the exhibit is very moving. Be sure to pick up the exhibit brochure when purchasing your entrance ticket, it is written in both French and English. The fee is 5.10 Euros but well worth it.

A small museum I visited with a few other people from my tour group, at Romans Sur Isere - Drome, went there just before lunchtime on Tuesday 22 July 2014 and paid 5.10 Euros for a short visit, I didn't have a lot of time. The museum covers French history, but I went there for the WW11 aspect, resistance, deportations and explanations of the country/region. There are good displays of photographs and explanations but all in French. There is no literature or souvenirs to buy in English.

As we were passing through, if one is in the area spend an afternoon, the museum looks fairly new and worth a visit, there was also a large shoe exhibition on.

We were there more than three times, because our very good friends are living there. The city is different in summer and winter, but each time has a special charm. In summer you can find very very nice cycling routes nearby. Along the Isere is a beautiful trail in autumn walks. Amazing bakeries every step in the city completely got us.
Romans is known production of shoes in the past - you can see Museum of shoes.

Unfortunately located deep inside the Shoe Museum where it may be just too far for some people to bother going to see but.....you should. If you have interest in WW2 this is very informative, very specialist and you'll be well rewarded for your efforts expended in getting through the shoes.
