In 1943, the Nazis brought more than 300 Jews to this ex-convent before deportation to concentration camps. Only 38 survived. We are reminded of these horrific events by a monument created in 1969 by Lucien Wercollier, who was himself a camp survivor. Luxembourg’s Jewish community numbered more than 3,900 in 1940, but more than 1,200 perished in the Holocaust.
