Geneviève de Gaulle-Anthonioz
Geneviève de Gaulle-Anthonioz was interred in the Panthéon in May 2015 as part of a symbolic ceremony. Instead of her remains, Gaulle-Anthonioz’s coffin contains soil from her grave, as the resistance worker expressed the wish to be buried with her husband, Bernard Anthonioz, in Bossey, Haute-Savoie.

Enter through the main entrance, and go straight all the way to the back of the building. There will be a sign pointing left to go to the Crypt. Follow the signs and go down the staircase to the Crypt. In the Crypt, equal in size to the main hall above, though with space consumed by structural elements, you’ll see the tombs and memorials in various rooms branching out from the main hallway. Geneviève de Gaulle-Anthonioz is located in an alcove with Pierre Brossolette, Germaine Tillion, and Jean Zay.
