During the Second World War, the Hille castle housed a colony of Jewish children, refugees here to escape Nazi barbarism ... Their survival was only possible thanks to the action of the Swiss Red Cross Relief Children, with the dedication of an exceptional framing, but also with the engagement of the population of the village and its surroundings.
Despite everything, several of them did not escape. To keep the memory of these painful moments, the municipality of Montégut-Plantaurel decided to create a museum where nine explanatory panels, technical sheets, files and some objects from this period are installed.
This museum is open to all.
The museum is open Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m .; other days by reservation.
Please note: The museum is not at the castle. It is located in the crossing of the village within the media library.
