Pithiviers camp in 1941.

Pithiviers internment camp was a Nazi transit camp in Pithiviers, France (roughly 80 km (50 mi) south of Paris), during the Second World War. Children were separated there from their parents; the adults were processed and deported to concentration camps farther away, usually Auschwitz. This was the fate of the novelist Irène Némirovsky.
