We stumbled on this memorial quite by accident, and found the visit to be particularly informative and moving, especially the room housing the eternal flame which is reminiscent of the same room in Yad Vashem. This museum is small and approachable, and we were happy to see that there was a group of teens among the visitors.

I visited this site with my daughter. We both were very moved by it. It is a little difficult to find. It is located at the end of Ile de la Cite and it is worth to honor the holocaust victims by a visit.

A great museum in Paris, free , informative, and sobering. In the courtyard there is a Jerusalem stone wall with names of all those French people who were deported to concentration camps. Exhibits are well done. They also show films, have lectures,etc. also has a research library.All free, but prepare yourself for metal detector and serious security. A great bookstore.... More

I was surprised by this. There is a special area sort of inside the granite walls that makes it unique and moving experience. It had a velvet rope across it but a tour guide took his people in and let us in too. That was the highlight to see all the names of those lost inscribed on the walls.

Excellent exhibit showing the horrors of the Holocaust. A testament to those lost and the survivors. The Crypt with eternal flame is a tribute. Outside are many stone panels with names of all who were sent to camps by year.

Since today there are so many Holocaust deniers, and anti-semitism is on the rise, particularly in France, this powerful memorial is more important and timely than ever.

This is an outsiding site to visit. Recommend it to everyone. We need to perpetuate the ideal of the Holocaust never happening again!

I thought I had read and watched a lot on the holocaust and France in WWII but this was fascinating. There were three main exhibitions but only two in English but still plenty to read and watch for an hour or more. Amazing wall of names as well. Free and we'll worth a visit.

The Memorial de la Shoah is a stark reminder of the dark past of Europe. Inside you will find a very well preserved and well presented account of Jewish History. The collection begins with early Europe and gives a very well description of pre and post WWII life of Jews. It is a bit of a distance off the beaten... More

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.
