If you love your History and want to connect with the past then is well worth a visit. Can be a lot to take in and will leave you with a lot to think about - but you must go!

This is a thought provoking place to visit, with the names of those killed in the Holocaust by year and alphabetical order engraved on walls in their inner courtyard. Helps you understand the history of Jews in Europe and some of the events before and...More

This is a very well-done Shoah Memorial. France, and Paris in particular, was not let off the hook for their complicity with the Nazis. The history was not whitewashed and was explained quite well. The wall of names was poignant. I would recommend visiting this...More

Who knew there were concentration camps in France during WWII? This Memorial Place is worth several hours for anyone interested in history and/or human rights. It is an extremely well-done memorial to the Shoah (Holocaust in English) that you will never forget

spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

There are elevators, however, some parts are not accessible. You may want to call ahead, in case there are accessibility features I was not aware of. They speak English.

Certainly can do the outside part in that time. You would not manage the museum attached to it
