We found this lovely memorial while visiting Le Marais neighbourhood. It is pretty well hidden so I guess not many visit it though I've seen some signs in the steets about it. Worth a visit if you are in the area though most things displayed...More

The Memorial is well hidden at the end of the Ile De La Cite and well worth discovering. Relativity few tourists make for a peaceful and reflective rest from the bustle of "the sights".

If you are interested in the Shoah, this outstanding museum is a must-experience. Also not to be missed is the bookstore, whose knowledgeable and congenial Director, Gilbert Siboni, is often available for enlightening conversations.

I would recommend this to everyone. There is a lot of history that needs to be learned and shared with young generations. It is very well done

The tale of the Jews of Paris (and France for that matter) is not often told but this chilling and extraordinary memorial does the job.

This memorial is very informative and moving, and makes you look at how history can be so intense. My family spent quite a long time going through all the displays and reading the informative plaques. The pictures are very moving and really make you emotional....More

This was a last minute addition for me and I am so glad I went. I do wish I read French as I couldn’t take it all of the written stuff but I was deeply impacted just the same. I found the staff incredibly courteous...More

A very nice place and surely evocative. Be sure to spare some time when walking near the Marais district.

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
