Not only do you learn about The french role in the Holocaust, but you really learn about French AntiSemitism at the same time. The small museum, located in the Marais, is a sobering testament and place to learn about how French society has dealt with...More

A very worthwhile visit. As well as giving the background on the rise of antisemitism in Europe between the wars, particularly in Germany, it also covers the history of French Jewry which I knew nothing about. It also gave the shocking details of the fate...More

We had an especially difficult time trying to figure out how to get in. Weird! But once security let us in, it was a wonderful spot. Overwhelming, heavy subject but they currently have an exceptional exhibit on comics and the holocaust. Glad we made time!

The Shoah Memorial and Museum is well worth visiting in Paris. It has a permanent exhibition which explains the background and history of the Holocaust/Shoa with a special emphasis on France. And, there are special exhibitions. There was one on Beate and Serge Klarsfeld when...More

After Mass at Notre Dame and fortified by cappuccino and pain au chocolate, we sought out the Shoah Memorial. Nothing, of course, can fortify one for a Holocaust presentation, especially one as well done and expansive as this one in Paris. The walls of names...More

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

There are elevators, however, some parts are not accessible. You may want to call ahead, in case there are accessibility features I was not aware of. They speak English.

Certainly can do the outside part in that time. You would not manage the museum attached to it
