A regular stop on most of our trips. A reminder of the horrible things past and a reminder to Never Forget, But Never Forgive.

This is an incredible site, very centrally located (about five minutes from Notre Dame). Please take the half an hour or so to explore its thoughtfully arranged monuments and exhibits. It is a solemn place and a really excellent way to remember the horrors of...More

A grim reminder of how a beautiful city and its people suffered under the Nazis and a lasting tribute to those who risked their lives to help others. Allow 60-90 minutes. There is a section designed specially for children viewers.

I stumbled on this when walking around. It is a free memorial and worth the hour visit. There is a lot of history of France's impact in WWII and the effects the holocaust had on the country. It's sombering but a good reminder of history.

Wandering around the Marais brought us to the memorial. It is not nearly as large as the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC but is just as moving and important. As soon as you want in you see wall after wall of those exterminated during WW2....More

Come here to read some of the names of those who have perished and make sure you visit the museum behind the memorial. A sad chapter in the world's history, but very important to Paris.

A holocaust museum that addresses and acknowledges the role of Parisians in the holocaust during Nazi occupation of Paris. A well documented, telling view of a WWII tragedy. Touching tributes to those who perished, respectfully presented.

This museum isn't one you'll find on a "must visit" list but it's absolutely worth it. Much of it is in French, which unfortunately, my husband and I don't speak/read. This cut our time here short and I know we could have spent hours learning...More

I went here at the suggestion of a tour guide. He mentioned the memorial wall in the alley; the names of French Citizens that aided in the escape & hiding of Jews in France. To my surprise there is also the museum/memorial. I'm glad I...More

We spent five hours here and really needed more. You enter into a courtyard where are inscribed the names of 76,000 Jews deported from Paris during the War, The permanent exhibition tells heartwarming and heartbreaking stories and the French own up to their responsibility. Entry...More
