During the Second World War, the Château de la Hille housed a colony of Jewish children, refugees here to escape Nazi barbarism. Their survival was only possible thanks to the action of the Swiss Red Cross Children's Relief, the dedication of an extraordinary supervision, but also to the commitment of the population of the village and its surroundings. Despite everything, several of them did not escape. To keep the memory of these painful moments, the municipality of Montégut-Plantaurel has decided to create a museum where nine explanatory panels, technical sheets, files and some objects from this period are installed.
