Very worthwhile visit

It is a privilege to bear witness to the atrocities of the Holocaust, and to emerge the other side unscathed. Very interesting, informative and moving place. Highly recommend.

Free admission. Daily 10-6 except Sat and til 10pm on Thur. Guided tours Sun at 3 and in English only on the second Sun of the month.

Not far from Notre Dame in an area of Paris known as Le Marais you will find the, Memorial de la Shoah. I did not know what to expect when I visited the Memorial - understanding that the French people have only recently acknowledged the part they played as the Vichy Government's exporting Paris Jews to their deaths at the...

I was searching for WWII historical information when I visited this new memorial. I felt welcomed immediately by the helpful staff who met me at the entrance. There are many walls with names of Hitler's Jewish/French victims lining the aisles leading into the memorial's interior areas. I purchased several CD's and books in the library/book store to share with my... More

you may think that visit Paris and the Shoah Memorial are a contradiction, but the truth is that the jewish community in France had been part of the history of France and was great to learn more about it. The Memorial is not that big in an hour you can done with the visit but is a great place for... More

After visiting Notre Dame, seek this gem out. Free admission to learn France's part in the Holocaust. Take the time to absorb the impact it had on the country.

I visited this museum whilst on a trip to Paris as it's included in my A Levels and my boyfriend has a general interest in the War. The staff are very welcoming and make it less scary as you have to go through security. Lovely and quiet as a memorial should be.

The Shoah Memorial in Paris is, I think, the best memorial of its kind that I have visited. Upon entering the memorial, I spent an hour or two just reading the many many names engraved on the stone slabs. This in itself was an incredibly humbling experience. Although my level of French is not excellent, the exhibits inside were still... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
