The Royallieu-Compiègne was an internment and deportation camp in Compiègne, France where French resistance fighters and Jews, among others were imprisoned. About 40,000 people were deported from the Royallieu-Compiègne camp to Auschwitz and other camps in German territory.

A memorial of the camp, and another along the railway tracks commemorates the tragedy.
