Why does a French flag wave above the camp?

The French flag waves above the National Necropolis, where 1,118 French men and women who died in deportation at KL-Natzweiler or elsewhere are buried, as well as the remains of an unknown deportee, who is interred in the vault at the foot of the Memorial. The decision to create the cemetery was taken in 1950 in order to bury the remains of deportees that the Nazis had not managed to destroy. In 1960 the Executive Board decided to transfer 14 urns containing soil or anonymous ashes from other concentration camps to the vault.
