Ce déplacement peut être physique, comme cela fut le cas pour des milliers de personnes, avant, pendant et après l’Holocauste, mais il peut aussi être métaphorique, émotionnel, psychologique… Les événements de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et l’Holocauste ont conduit les individus à emprunter différents types d’itinéraires, et leurs conséquences ont plongé le monde dans un abîme de réflexion, toujours actuel, autour du « plus jamais ça ».

On the eve of World War II, there were about 8,000 Jews in the city, over half the whole population. Oświęcim was occupied immediately at the beginning of WWII. By October 1939, it was annexed into Greater Germany.
