Mémorial de la Shoah, Paris

17 rue Geoffroy-l'Asnier - 75004 Paris

Le Marais - 4e Arrondissement


The Mémorial opened its doors 60 years after the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp, on the site of the Mémorial to the Unknown Jewish Martyr. This museum retraces the history of French Jews. One of the more poignant moments of the visit is the Wall of Names, on which are engraved the names of the 76,000 Jews deported from France.
