Bourget Station

Between June 1942 and June 1943, 41 convoys of about 40,000 Jews departed from Bourget station in northern Paris. The majority of the transports went to Eastern Europe, mainly to Auschwitz. The Jews who were deported came from the detention camp Drancy about 2.5 kilometers southeast of the station. However, the station was not sufficiently isolated from view, which meant that the Germans from July 1943 moved the deportations to the more secluded station Bobigny, just over two kilometers south of Bourget.

Current status: Preserved with monument (2016).

Address: 19 Avenue Francis de Pressensé, 93350 Le Bourget.

Get there: Commuter train to Le Bourget Station.

My comment:

The Station still exists and the large number of tourists who pass the station daily between Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and Paris are probably unaware of its history.
