Well done memorial. Was very difficult to find and people had no clue were it was located. I wish we had more time to spend there .

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

If you love your History and want to connect with the past then is well worth a visit. Can be a lot to take in and will leave you with a lot to think about - but you must go!

This is a thought provoking place to visit, with the names of those killed in the Holocaust by year and alphabetical order engraved on walls in their inner courtyard. Helps you understand the history of Jews in Europe and some of the events before and...More

This is a very well-done Shoah Memorial. France, and Paris in particular, was not let off the hook for their complicity with the Nazis. The history was not whitewashed and was explained quite well. The wall of names was poignant. I would recommend visiting this...More

"Shoah" is Hebrew term for "destruction", and this museum is dedicated to the victims of such catastrophe. I had been to the entrance of the museum 3 times and every time, I just could not make myself go inside it. I spent almost 3 hours...More

Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets

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
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
