On May 27, 2015, four figures of resistance will enter the Pantheon: Pierre Brossolette, Geneviève de Gaulle-Anthonioz, Germaine Tillion and Jean Zay.

To associate itself with these commemorations, the Ministry of Culture and Communication, in collaboration with the National Archives, presents from April 30 to June 14, 2015, in the windows of the peristyle of the rue de Valois, an exhibition around Jean Zay, commitment politician.

Its action and reforms in the fields of Education, Fine Arts and Culture are founding, and the legacy of its policy in the service of the Republic is more relevant than ever.

This exhibition, inaugurated by Fleur Pellerin on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 in the presence of Catherine Martin-Zay and Hélène Mouchard-Zay, is an opportunity to recall her journey and her commitments, as well as the importance of her ministerial action, illustrated thanks to the wealth of the private Jean Zay collection preserved in the National Archives.

Around the exhibition:

The National Archives also pay tribute to Jean Zay and the three other figures of commitment and resistance that are Pierre Brossolette, Geneviève de Gaulle-Anthonioz and Germaine Tillion through the exhibition «4 résistants au Panthéon», from May 6 to July 24, 2015, Pierrefitte-sur-Seine site.
