Always that the government must take responsibility for deaf history. That is part of the country's heritage. Often they are interested in medical hearing developments, but the culture and social life of Deaf people are more interesting!!

There are a few associations in France which have a small museum, either in their home or in the house of associations. I think they should be encouraged to continue to preserve, protect and safeguard the cultural heritage of the Deaf community.

It would also be interesting and necessary for museums to show solidarity and to be able to exchange information, knowledge and experiences.
