The tale of the Jews of Paris (and France for that matter) is not often told but this chilling and extraordinary memorial does the job.

This memorial is very informative and moving, and makes you look at how history can be so intense. My family spent quite a long time going through all the displays and reading the informative plaques. The pictures are very moving and really make you emotional....More

This was a last minute addition for me and I am so glad I went. I do wish I read French as I couldn’t take it all of the written stuff but I was deeply impacted just the same. I found the staff incredibly courteous...More

A very nice place and surely evocative. Be sure to spare some time when walking near the Marais district.

A stone slab with names of the disappeared set in what once was the middle of the Jewish quarter. In front of a fine museum.

We visited this place on a whim, as we had a few minutes, and while there are some aspects I'd suggest tweaking, it definitely exceeded expectations. Entry was free, which is very generous. The history leading up to the Holocaust, the horrific period, and the...More

The center features two areas for temporary exhibits related to WWII. The visit can take as little as 40 minutes including the memorial, the wall of victims, the wall of the righteous (which is outside), the eternal flame and the exhibits. Quite a moving experience

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
