Mémoires du Convoi 6 is dedicated to finding the children, families, and friends of persons transferred from Pithiviers, France to Auschwitz on "Convoi 6" – and to the transmission and preservation of their memory. This convoy left Pithiviers on July 17th, 1942, its cars crammed with men women and children who were arrested, for the most part, in the "Billet Vert" operation of May 1941 and interned in camps in the Loiret region of France in Pithiviers and Beaune-la-Rolande. Their crime? Being Jewish. On this web site you will discover how our organization came about, photos of deportees, and information about our various activities.
