Etching History into Public Memory

Mémorial de la Shoah

In 1943, the Centre de Documentation Juive Contemporaine (CDJC) – or, the Contemporary Jewish Documentation Center – began to archive evidence of the persecution European Jews faced during the Holocaust, or Shoah (in Hebrew). This collection paved the way for a 60-year process of developing what is today the Shoah Memorial. The Shoah Memorial brings together people from all over the world, from different backgrounds and interests. It contains a museum — which is home to exhibits, events, research archives, and speakers each year — and provides educational programs and sponsored trips that are dedicated to the continued remembrance of the devastation experienced and lessons learned during the Holocaust. This mission is especially necessary at a time when those who experienced this genocide first-hand are entrusting their memories and stories to younger generations.
