A holocaust museum that addresses and acknowledges the role of Parisians in the holocaust during Nazi occupation of Paris. A well documented, telling view of a WWII tragedy. Touching tributes to those who perished, respectfully presented.

This museum isn't one you'll find on a "must visit" list but it's absolutely worth it. Much of it is in French, which unfortunately, my husband and I don't speak/read. This cut our time here short and I know we could have spent hours learning...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.

We visited the memorial with a heavy heart. It represents the very worst in mankind, but it's presentation of photographs and history shows great respect and shows the need to remember. Present was a group of young police officers also going through the museum with...More

While there is no such specific exhibit, I beg to differ from the previous response. This is an extremely touching memorial to the 76,000 French victims of the Holocaust and those of us who are descendants, survivors, Jews... More
