The Mémorial des Martyrs de la Déportation

World War II was a very tragic time for much of Europe and whilst under Nazi occupation, the French people really did suffer and the Memorial des Martyrs de la Deportation was put in place to remember those who suffered at the hands of the German army.

Designed by the architect G H Pingusson, this national monument is dedicated to the memory of around 200,000 French people which also included approximately 75,000 Jews who were deported to Germany and died at one of the many concentration camps.

The Mémorial des Martyrs de la Déportation

This Paris monument is actually quite bleak to provide a harsh reminder of the atrocities that took place during the Second World War and it separates a courtyard from the River Seine with a small barred window and 200,000 pieces of backlit glass.

In the winter the Memorial des Martyrs de la Deportation is open from 10am until noon, then from 2pm through to 5pm, however, in the summer months it is open from 10am until noon, then from 2pm through to 7pm.
