Built as a collective living space in the 1930s but never finished, the Cité de la Muette became an internment camp in 1941, and then in 1942 a regroupment camp for the Jews of France in preparation for their deportation towards extermination camps. Between March, 1942, and August, 1944, approximately 63,000 of the 76,000 Jews deported from France went through Drancy. The Cité de la Muette was once again inhabited after 1948 by immigrants. It is a place of history and of transmission, and opened on September 2012.  The central role of the Drancy camp in the exclusion of the Jews of France during the Second World War and in the implementation of the final solution by the Nazis with the complicity of the Vichy government.

7 p.m. Cocktails and gathering at Le Comptoir Ghetto museum and space of immigration
Le Comptoir is dedicated to exoticism (the quality of being attractive or striking through being colourful or unusual, style or traits considered characteristic of a distant foreign country). As a curious adventurer and a voyage lover, it invites you to explore and appreciate these foreign and strange cultures, poorly known, sometimes underrated and often marginalized. Because exoticism does not only define itself through frontiers and territories, it is also rooted in history, traditions, communities, and exclusions. Thus, Le Comptoir Général explores these faraway lands, looking for the most powerful references and the best talents they might hide away. Once identified, it brings them back to life from the details of their decoration, to their slightest codes and moods. For some of these talents, the adventure goes beyond this: what better way to fight against exclusion and difference is there than offering the society as useful as desirable goods? Accompanied by Le Comptoir Général, these exotic talents can learn to manage, preserve and promote durably their patrimony, transforming it in a new source of revenues and knowledge. Le Comptoir Général is a filial of the W.A.L.T. group, a private and independent actor that reinvests all its benefits in the promotion of animated projects.

Day 3, Tues. Sept. 19

4:30 p. m.  Visit to 59 Rue Rivoli (Included)
On November 1, 1999, the KGB (Kalex, Gaspard, Bruno), managed to open up the cemented-over door of 59 rue de Rivoli in Paris. The building had been abandoned by the Crédit Lyonnais and the French state for 15 years. A dozen artists showed up to lend a hand in the clean-up which was a mess full of dead pigeons, syringes, rubble, etc. The purpose of this operation was threefold:
- Revive an unused empty place
- Create a place for artists to create, live, and expose
- Prove the validity of a cultural alternative
  The space receives tens of thousands of visitors each year, sometimes as many as 4,000 visitors a week coming for expos, concerts as well as studio visits and the 59 Rivoli has become one of the three most visited sites of contemporary art in Paris, one of the ten most visited places in France. This is a real cultural alternative way to present art that allows for a more democratic access to its creation, both for the artists and for the public. Right in the center of Paris, 59 Rivoli creates interest by its fun, unique, and creative façade which changes every few months.
Evening free or dinner together

2:30 - 4:00 p.m. Vist to Memorial de La Shoah (Included)
The Shoah Memorial was opened to the public in January 2005, rue Geoffroy l’Asnier, on the site of the Mémorial du Martyr Juif Inconnu (Memorial to the Unknown Jewish Martyr). Situated at this turning point of the “century of genocides”, open to the new century, the new institution is intended as a bridge between the men and women who were contemporaries of the Shoah and those who did not experience this period of history, either directly or through the mediation of their parents. Although it is a continuation of the CDJC and the Memorial to the Unknown Jewish Martyr, the Shoah Memorial is also a new phase in the transmission of the memory and the lessons of the Shoah, which so far had been essentially borne by the direct witnesses of the extermination of Jews of Europe. The Memorial’s mission, at the heart of the work of the historians, researchers and educators who come together here to be a source of inspiration open to all, ready to welcome the new generations. The Memorial is a resource center, the first and foremost collection of archives on the Shoah in Europe, but it is also a “museum of vigilance”, designed to learn, understand and experience, because now and forever it will always be necessary to construct “a rampart against oblivion, against a rekindling of hatred and contempt for man”, to quote Eric de Rothschild, President of the Memorial. The Documentation Center has a collection of over a million archives, 75,000 photos and 55,000 books. Archives originated in particular from the German administration and Gestapo in France, trials including Nuremberg and French sources such as the Commissariat Général aux questions juives (General Commission for Jewish Affairs). The Museum: the permanent exhibition offers a chronological and thematic visit composed of twelve sequences depicting the history of Jews in France during the Shoah. The exhibition alternates between individual destinies and collective history. Based on the archives of the Documentation Center, with regular new additions, the museum is accessible to any kind of public.

8 p.m. Dinner Cafe Zimmer
During the “dark years”, the “Honneur de la Police” resistance network met in the cavernous basements, where a secret hiding place, whose precise location is now unknown, enabled several families to escape anti-Semitic persecution. During the occupation, the Café Zimmer hosted secret meetings of a police resistance network. This was later acknowledged by the Mayor of Paris and the Prefect of police with a commemorative plaque that bears the names of Edmond Dubent (police commissaire and founder of the “Honneur de Police” group), Charles Henri Porte (police commissaire), Paul Turgne and Raymond Boudier (national security police inspector), Marcel Pruvost and Raymond Micheli (policeman), all of whom were arrested here and deported. 
In 2000, the owner, Jean Luc Gintrand, entrusted the Zimmer’s renovation to the talented decorator Jacques Garcia, who managed to restore much of its authentic charm, thereby preserving the location’s rich past and reinvigorating one of the most beautiful Parisian cafés in the Place de Châtelet.
Shortly after the Franco-German War of 1870, a number of families in Alsace who wanted to remain French, such as the Zimmers, Weplers, Drehers, and Bofingers, moved to Paris and set-up large brasseries upholding their region’s traditions, many of which are still operating today. When it was created in 1896, the Zimmer, in the Place du Châtelet, was the most luxurious of the three establishments belonging to the Zimmer Company of Taverns.
The ground floor room with its elegant ceiling and delightfully refined floral décor offered a different style to the other Parisian brasseries of the time. Guests could also recline on ottomans and sofas in the bar upstairs. It was so successful that the establishment was soon expanded. Just before the First World War, it had four levels, including a mezzanine with a fifty-seat restaurant. Upstairs, lounges and private rooms were available for more intimate meetings.
The Zimmer’s history is closely linked to the Théâtre du Châtelet: there used to be doors connecting them, so that theatre-goers could access the show directly from the ground floor and the lounge on the first floor.  The Zimmer has always been popular with artists and writers, its clientele has included legendary figures such as Jules Verne, Emile Zola, Sarah Bernhardt, Gustav Mahler, Claude Debussy, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Richard Strauss, Arturo Toscanini, Edmond Rostand, Marcel Proust, Serge de Diaghilev, Guillaume Apollinaire, Igor Stravinski, Vaslav Nijinski, and Pablo Picasso among many others.
