A thorough and nice piece of French-Judeo history preserved here. I wish more of the information had been available in English, yet still very moving. Most of the main pieces did have English translation. I wish I had been able to understand the videos. Still a good place to see and remember.

This well designed and documented memorial is moving. It is interesting to compare it to the very pure Berlin memorial. Both are equally successful to achieve their goal.

A museum for the deportation of 76000 Jews including 11000 children by the Nazis to the concentration camps to be killed thereafter . A must to remember and never forget the holocaust . Very impressive and touching . Not to be missed .

We had not intended to go this museum - but walked right by and the timing was right. What an incredibly powerful museum. Beautifully displayed though not easy to get through (because the subject matter is so heavy) At the entrance is a cauldron with the names of all the camps - there is also a wall of names of...

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.

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

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.
