The Association

Founded in July 1999, our Association "The Family and Friends of the Deportees of Convoy 73" currently numbers 300 members representing 238 deportees. The members meet once a year in May at the disused train station at Bobigny from where the deportation convoys departed and at Drancy, to reflect in private thought on the memory of their loved ones.

An Annual General Assembly is held at the same time and future projects are discussed.

In 1999, second and third generations descendants introduced their plans for the publication of a list of victims via Internet and the creation of a web-site.
