Memorial De La Shoah - Review
Primarily a memorial in honour of the Jews that succumbed in the holocaust, the memorial makes for a moving and thought provoking visit. Cleverly laid out and highly informative, the pictures and personal belongings of the families that perished are clearly displayed, making the experience even more personal for the visitor. There is a library and bookshop on site too. A number of exhibits shed light over the gradual marginalisation and persecution of the Jews.

Memorial De La Shoah, Paris Reviews
Outstanding Jewish memorial and museum. No cost for this museum and they also offer free translation earpiece if you want. I loved every inch of this museum.
We only intended popping in but we ended up spending much longer here. Make sure you pick up an English audio guide though as a lot of the exhibits are only in French.
Free entrance. Going inn went smooth and the people were very welcoming. Some content in English is damaged and can’t be read. Do not go with children; The content is not very well structured to read. Toilets are not suited for smaller children. The employee working in the Expedition Permanent area on the 19th of July was very rude to my children. I even got the feeling that this was due to our native language (Dutch) witch can be recognized as German. The employee removed the books my children were looking at out of their hands and placed it back on the shelf. She did not want to explain why. She just said that we must look everywhere together with our children. At the front desk her co-worker told us that is was a safe environment for children. Shocking pictures would be on a different floor. The lady was very bossy and did not give a welcome feeling at all. It is a shame because it is important that the newer generations learn from mistakes that have been made. The behavior of this employee, the lack of well structured content to read and missing content that is understandable for children from 7 - 12 is the reason for this low score. I will go again without children and will try the audio course because I do want to know If I can learn more about the 2nd World War then I already know.
I was lost for words when i walked into the crypt, very moving place. Let all work together so this doesnt happen to anyone else. Irrespective of race or religion
Touching Experience: "Shoah" is Hebrew term for "destruction", and this museum is dedicated to the victims of such catastrophe. I had been to the entrance of the museum 3 times and every time, I just could not make myself go inside it. I spent almost 3 hours inside the museum and afterwards I was drained emotionally, the whole place leaves you exhausted and the people who went through this, my heart went out to them. Oh man, why you do this to your fellow beings! Take time to go through it, some of the videos are so moving, it is difficult to even see the entire piece. And then there is hope at the end of it all, hopeful recollection from the survivors, from the people who helped them. To go through this kind of experience and not have even an iota of bitterness towards others, only a GREAT human being can achieve this. Respect, I salute to the resilient human spirit. And do not miss "The Wall of the Righteous" outside the museum dedicated to the people who helped while risking their own lives. Great human spirit...
