The best parts of this are the films (the long one on the trial of Klaus Barbe (sp?) and all the shorter ones throughout the museum detailing the experiences of those in the resistance -- all with English translations or subtitles) but even with a fairly good knowledge of France during WWII there was little context given in English. There is a pamphlet available in English at the Coat Check but it doesn't tie well to the various exhibits. Also, for those of us Americans whose parents risked or lost their lives in WWII, it is disappointing to note that the only mention of those brave Americans that I saw was a mention of how it was Allied bombing that damaged Lyon. Still, the story this museum seeks to tell is an important one that must be respected and remembered.
