Honoring by Remembering

Mémorial de la Shoah

In 1943, the Centre de Documentation Juive Contemporaine (CDJC) — translated as the Contemporary Jewish Documentation Center – began to archive evidence of the persecution that European Jews faced at the hands of the Nazis 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 and from different backgrounds. The institution contains a museum — which is home to exhibits, events, research archives, and speakers — 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 firsthand are entrusting their memories and stories to younger generations.
