European project Convoi 77
To teach Shoah and second world war history through individual fates
CITIES & TOWNS
Each group will determine its objectives, its method of work, and the division of tasks among its members.
Alone or in a group, students will go to the town hall, consult the local archives, look for witnesses, photos, documents.
High school students will be able to know and better understand the historical events that took place in their immediate environment, while allowing the memory of deportees of the convoy 77 to be forgotten.

Remembering the victims of the Holocaust is a historical obligation for every European. The lessons of the past must not be forgotten. “Never again” starts with remembrance, with passing to the next generation the stories behind the unthinkable numbers of murdered people.
With less and less survivors able to tell their personal stories of the horrible crimes and their survival, it is our duty to keep the memory alive. When we give faces to the numbers, we prevent those that perished to disappear in oblivion. “Convoy 77” does just that. In a unique and very impressive way it opens our eyes to the fact that behind every victim, there is a story of a life to be told.Katharina von Schnurbein Coordinator on combating Antisemitism - European Commission
The sort of people who leave few traces … Often what I know about them amounts to no more than a simple address. And such topographical precision contrasts with what we shall never know about their life – this blank, this mute block of the unknown.Patrik Modiano from Dora Bruder

The association Fils et Filles des Déportés Juifs de France enthusiastically supports the initiative of Georges Mayer and the association Convoy 77 he created. European project Convoy 77 is innovatory on a European scale and will bring positive results in terms of pedagogy, education and public spiritedness.
I truly think the research and work the students are going to undertake with their teachers’ help will fascinate them, and inspire them in their European civic training.Serge Klarsfeld
I do believe that to listen to a witness is to become a witness in turn. Memory is there to protect us, but we must maintain it, nourish it.Elie Wiesel
The Shoah must not represent only millions of victims, but a victim, plus a victim, so that each of them can be restored to their civil status, their itinerary, their dignity; that they are removed from oblivion and anonymity so that, from objects of history, these names become subjects of history again.Serge Klarsfeld Mémoires p 671 Fayard 2015
