Memorial des Martyrs de la Deportation, Paris

4.4
On the site of a former morgue, Memorial des Martyrs de la Deportation remembers the 76,000 people deported from Vichy France to Nazi concentration camps during World War II. This vast, dimly-lit, hexagonal crypt opens out to a gallery covered by illuminated rods, which represent the people who were deported and killed in the camps. Two small galleries on the sides of the crypt contain soil from different camps, as well as ashes from several cremation ovens preserved in triangular urns.

  • The design is so sensitive, respectful, intense and factual. The chosen location is M.I. by the architect beautifully and full used. Through the lines, the ' gate ' fitting into those used lines and sight on the water of the Seine. The design makes me quiet. It forces me to stop with the suffering of so many, then and now. It also forces me to think about myself and humanity or the wars now. Have we learned? That question goes through me when I see the water of the Seine through the work of art. Water is always on the move. Do I Want to see the transience of our intentions in that moving water? Or rather see it as a sign of the future? In any case, I can recommend young and old to visit this monument. I have been there several times. With young and older children, with family or with friends.

  • Small Memorial But well prepared after a requalification of 2016. The general sense, entering from a beautiful sunny day on the Ile de la cite, is of oppression. Right Thing, but go with the right spirit

  • This seems to be a hidden gem near the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Our group was the only ones there on a midday. This really hits home to how impactful WWII was and the impact that the Nazi's had in such an outreaching area. It really makes you understand how life was like for everyone in the early 1940's. Some of the information will astound everyone. For a WWII student this will really shine as a place to have to stop by in Paris. It is a very emotional place.
  • Nice architectural design. Convenient to visit.
