Hello

Here a part from a French internetsite about this Business School

IFI occupies the Chateau, which is at the heart of the Campus Consulaire. The building dates from 1889 and has been completely restored. During World War II, the Chateau was the headquarters of the German naval occupation forces in the Normandy region. To this day, the concrete bunker used by the Germans can be seen 25 meters from the front door of the Chateau .

Not much to be seen today.

Any one living in Rouen?
