This is a newly extended museum/memorial to the persecution and deportation of the Jews from France, with particular reference to the deportations in 1942-44. Because of the meticulous documentation by the Vichy Government/Nazis, almost everything is known of the fate of the 76,000 people rounded...More

We have been to Holocaust Memorials all over the world but this one does no stack up. It is primarily text and newspaper scraps. It tells an important story and maybe they need a generous sponsor to step up. The building itself is very nice...More

We spent five hours here and really needed more. You enter into a courtyard where are inscribed the names of 76,000 Jews deported from Paris during the War, The permanent exhibition tells heartwarming and heartbreaking stories and the French own up to their responsibility. Entry...More

Very impressive all these names of Jews who died in the camps, again a moment when you realise that this may never happen again.

Signposted from Bastille and St Paul this is free to visit. Owing to the sensitive nature of the place you have to go through security first. At the front there is a simple but affecting memorial listing every known person deported from Paris during WWII....More

Very moving. The museum was well done. Although mostly in French, the staff offered to explain further ( in English) if we desired.

This free museum in the Marais district tells the story of the Holocaust through the French experience. One plus is that almost all of the exhibits have English translation which is not something we experienced at other Paris museums. Learning about the French Resistance and...More

We found this memorial quite by accident, almost hidden down a back street. It is a very simple monument to the 76000 French Jews who were deported from Paris by the Vichy French in collaboration with the Nazis in WW2. The names of the 76000...More
