The Documentation Centre

English

The collections include the Fondation Leclerc’s historical collection as well as the various bequests and donations of the Jean Moulin and City of Paris collections. The documentation centre also holds a collection of interviews with, and eyewitness accounts by, people close to Leclerc and Jean Moulin, deportees, resistance fighters and former members of the 2e DB.

The library of the documentation and research centre

The books in the documentation centre library, which are listed below, can all be consulted in the library.

The majority of the collection has come into being thanks to donations by booklovers.

As a result of their generosity, the collection now comprises nearly 5000 reference books.

Grateful thanks to:
Monsieur Claude Levy, Monsieur Henri Michel, Madame Lucie Aubrac and Monsieur Raymond Aubrac, Monsieur Bernard Carré, Madame Viviane Bernard for their invaluable contribution.
The library also has an extensive collection of periodicals, including newspapers and reviews which appeared during the Occupation (including: Combat, Libération, Signal, l’Illustration), as well as a wide range of modern publications dealing with the Second World War (including: La Voix de la Résistance, les Chemins de la Mémoire, Caravane, Espoir).
