Therese's last cell

Cell "Saint-Élisée", located on the floor of the north wing of the monastery, in the Dormitory Saint-Élie. It is next to the Chapter. Thérèse occupied it from August 7 or 8, 1894 to July 8, 1897, the date on which she was taken down to the Sainte-Face infirmary. Its window overlooks the courtyard.


Last cell occupied by Thérèse - the bed faces the window.


Therese's work corner, with her own tools, near the window. The little lamp is lit, under her basket, her desk, and on her little bench, her apron.
