Memorial of the Shoah

The Shoah Memorial aims to preserve and transmit the memory of the Holocaust to subsequent generations by reckoning with issues of genocide and crimes against humanity. The Memorial features Europe’s first and foremost collection of archives on the Shoah and serves as a « museum of vigilance », so that visitors learn the consequences of intolerance and humanity’s obligation to prevent it. Firmly committed to pedagogy and the development of new programmes, the memorial offers educational opportunities for all ages such as guided tours, video screenings, pedagogical workshops, survivor testimony, seminars, training days and awareness sessions to teachers, researchers, librarians, policemen, judges.
