About us

Before becoming an internment camp, the Royallieu camp was a former military barracks built in 1913 and had a role as a hospital at the start of the Second World War.


Nowadays, since February 23, 2008, the Royallieu camp is a memorial of internment and deportation. The memorial resides within the walls of 3 remaining buildings (previously there were 24).


Indeed, during the occupation of the Oise by the Germans, the camp was transformed into a platform for transition to the concentration camps and as a place of internment from 1941 to 1944. Nearly 50 people, men and women, prisoners politicians, Jews, foreigners, resistance fighters, passed through this camp before being transported across the Rhine to Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Ravensbrück, ... More than half did not return.


Today, the museum traces the history of these men and women in this camp, through numerous documents, soundtracks, and other media to try to tell this story. The visitor can also follow the history of famous prisoners like Robert Desnos and Leonard Bernstein, who stayed there.


Moving place and witness of the most terrible hours of history.
