About Paris's Holocaust MuseumThe world has no small number of museums and memorials for the crimes committed to the Jewish community during the Holocaust. In Paris as well, you will be able to find a memorial for the commemoration of those who perished (Mémorial de la Shoah), and the meticulous documentation of the Jewish communities that lived here before the Holocaust.
In 2005, a site for commemorating the memory of the Holocaust was established, in honor of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The place offers a well-rounded experience that is fascinating for anyone seeking more information about the unbelievable and hard to accept Holocaust.
The building is divided to two parts that complement one another. There is an outdoor open area, where you can find a memorial in the memory of the killed with a main motif of light and shadows. Around the monument you will find the "Wall of Names," with written names of the 76,000 Jews that were banished from France (among them are 11,000 children). There is a monument for the "eternal flame," similar to the one at the Arc d'Triumph, and a monument to the anonymous Jewish hero, and the Righteous Among the Nations (there are about 2,700).
In the inner part of the building is the museum, which has taken on itself to make a bridge between the generation that suffered the Holocaust, and future generations. Testimonies, exhibits and informational learning centers - all these are available to visitors as well as the Jewish documentation center, containing all the information about the Jewish history during World War II. Visitors can listen to the chronological order of events that the French Jews suffered during the Holocaust and learn about the atrocities.
There are also temporary exhibits that also focus on this, like the destiny of the Jews of Europe, etc.
