Who knew there were concentration camps in France during WWII? This Memorial Place is worth several hours for anyone interested in history and/or human rights. It is an extremely well-done memorial to the Shoah (Holocaust in English) that you will never forget

A very moving collection is on display here. The history and plight of the French Jews is especially interesting. .So much to see and do in Paris that this small museum may be overlooked but should not be forgotten.

I've been to so many holocaust museums and they all approach the topic so differently. If you think you have seen it all, go to this one anyway. I spent 1.5 hours, but could have taken 3 hours to stop at every photo and read...More

restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner,
you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval
towers to classical libraries and 17th century
splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of

There are elevators, however, some parts are not accessible. You may want to call ahead, in case there are accessibility features I was not aware of. They speak English.
