    Pleasantly surprised to have a French speaking guide. Xavier was particularly interesting, dynamic, pleasant, exciting. The visit with a guide seems essential for the discovery of the camp. The tour is punctuated with relevant anecdotes related to the history of the camp. We are delighted with this experience and highly recommend it!
