Mémorial des Martyrs de la Déportation

Ile de la Cité Free
This sober tribute to the 200,000 Jews, Communists, homosexuals and résistants deported to concentration camps from France in World War II stands on the eastern tip of the island. A blind staircase descends to river level, where simple chambers are lined with tiny lights and the walls are inscribed with verse. A barred window looks out at the Seine.
