  • This was a very informative and somber place. It is very informative with the timeline of the rise of anti-semitism, and how it affected the whole of Europe. It goes into the French involvement a lot more, which was interesting. This memorial is much more informational, and not as "raw" like the one in Washington DC, but still very powerful. The wall of names and pictures will make a huge impact on you. Overall, I was very impressed, and would recommend it to everyone, you will learn something in this memorial.
  • A must visit place for those who are interested to know about Holocaust! Beware! If you are on holidays, you may end up with a very heavy heart. Not for light hearted
