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.

  • Behind the choir of Notre Dame, at an end of the Ile de la Cité you will find this memorial of the victims of the deportation. It is daily over day to visit except Mondays. This monument/museum is free. It is a serene monument made of concrete, partly underground. Access is narrow, as if you want to escape as a free person and live in captivity. The spaces of this memorial explain how many Jews from France have been deported to the extermination camps. No sensation, just cold names of cities. You will be quiet. This is a must for someone who wants to visit Paris in all its grandeur.

  • This place of remembrance is to be visited with the right spirit. Very suggestive and touching. To visit absolutely.

  • 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.
