Commemoration of the “Izieu raid” of 6 April 1944 by Commissioner Barnier
“We cannot forget the reality of the crime. We also cannot forget that in response to this crime, certain actions were made that were an ultimate expression of human dignity in the face of those that sought to suppress it. (...) The European Union was built not by forgetting, but by remembering and recognising its awful past”. Speech by Commissioner Barnier in Izieu.
