This museum offers much with NO admission charge. The exhibit "Bande Dessinée: the Holocaust & Comics" is a current exhibition that closes in the Fall 2017. It is excellent and informatve, especially for the younger population who may be seeking to learn about Hitler's genocide of the Jews. The permanent exhibits of the events of the Holocaust in France and... More

Small museum in the Marais. Excellent current exhibit of drawings on the top floor with both French and English descriptions. Outside is a memorial of the names of those who perished during this horrible time of our history. Spent about 2 hours here. I give it 3 stars due to staff and security. Unfortunately I did not find the museum... More

I stumbled on this memorial on a cold Spring day. I turned around and there it was. I spent time reading the names and reading whatever I could find online.

I hadn't planned on visiting this, but found myself close by and spent a couple of hours walking through it. Good high-level overview of anti-semitism in Europe through just after WWII. I have visited several Holocaust museums around the world, Yad Vashem, US Holocaust museum, Illinois Holocaust museum, and this is much more in line with the last one. It... More

An informative and well designed exhibition. But only in French - a disadvantage for foreign tourists.

The Shoah Memorial is a real emotional place, located on the extreme part of the "Ile de la cité" close to Notre Dame de Paris. There is a steep staircase that goes down to the place, and it's a dramatic felling that invades one's soul and spirit. big white wall around the central place. There is a museum of jewish... More

We visited this wonderful museum with friends including one who had grown up in Paris during WWII. The museum had several walls on the outside that were divided by year with the names of French Jews who had perished during the war. Inside were various exhibits. The one we liked the best was the one that detailed the evolution of... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small 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 people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
