This is a very moving memorial that presents a balanced view of France’s participation in World War II. The permanent exhibit documents both the Vichy government’s collaboration with the Nazis and honors the Righteous Among the Nations, those non-Jews who risked their lives to save others.
A very disturbing reminder that anti-semitism is alive and well is the tight security inside and out of this building. Also troubling to me was the apparent apathy of the current population. I asked several police officers on the nearby streets how to find this admittedly difficult location and they didn’t have a clue. Never heard of it.
The memorial is definitely worth an hour or so of your time in Paris for its sobering look at French history. Admission is free and it’s open late on Thursdays.
