Behind the noise and tourist fervour of the Notre Dame you will find this small but powerful memorial. My advice is to read the information panel close to the entrance gate and any other formation you can before entering this site.
Whilst it is small, probably ten minutes with see you through it, depending on your interest, not knowing the significance of the architecture and the internal "displays" (not the right word) the impact of the site may not be evident.
We had visited some of the most over-whelming and moving war cemeteries and museums in Flanders and the Somme before going to Paris. I can honestly say that this Memorial, to those who were deported from France during WW2, was a very solemn, quiet and reflective Place of Rememberance.
However, as a world community, we haven't seemed to have learnt anything from our past.
