  • The content of one of the most poignant museums that I have already visited. Something everyone should see! Certainly adolescents. And just that is intended if we are there with a group of students of 17 years. A great pity that the Organization of the museum always do the booking. Our commitment to this to show our students starts to get dents here and there. What a pity.

  • It was a very moving memorial! Filled with tons of information, however most of it only in French which was a bit difficult for non-speakers. Admission is also free and they are open on Sundays as well. Highly recommend visiting if in Paris.
  • At the street level you encounter the names of 76,000 Jews (11,000 of them children) that were deported from France during WWII and from there you descend into the memorial. Similar to other holocaust monuments there is a room/crypt dedicated to the memory of the 6 m Jews who were killed during the holocaust. The permanent collection tells the story of the Jewish people since the inception of their religion until WWII. The museum uses a variety of mediums - projections, images, video, drawings, pamphlets, and placards. All of the information panels are written in French and the majority of them are also written in English. The Memorial also has two temporary exhibition spaces with content changing every three months.
  • A beautiful memorial to the past. But the present is also in clear view; just notice the hyper security to the entrance to the building. Our Jewish friends are still under threat.
  • If you come to Paris, go here. Learn about the history, the present and the future.
  • Un très beau lieu
