Abstract : In 2009, Lyon’s prisons closed. The Montluc prison was the only one that was saved from demolition and turned into a memorial to the victims of the Nazi repression. By so doing, the other stories and memories of this prison, that operated from 1921 to 2009, were « forgotten », including those of the Algerian War. This article retraces the investigation that was conducted by sociologists who followed « the making of » of this heritage process and sought to show its public dimension. Finally, it shows how, with a public sociology approach, the researchers intend to experiment with digital resources so as to participate in public debates and the ongoing making of this heritage.
