These are the graves of street people ?

Even in death there is a feeling of community.

I have visited a lot of cemetries and this was the first time I saw a place dedicated to street people. The monument was made of pallets and recuperated artifacts.

The inscription translates "Not to forget the deaths in the street"

That's so sad. ..

They do indeed - sadly often alone and in very poor health for many years :-(

I met one who maintained a garden along the Isère river there. He finally got some unofficial aid and recognition from municipality. He told me he lived in a shelter where he recruted others to give him a hand.
