Exhibition : November 13, 2013 – September 2014
The exhibition presents an historical analysis of the photographs from collections preserved all over the world including pictures from many different ghettos (aside from the large ghettos like Warsaw, Lodz or Kovno, more than 400 other ghettos existed). These photographs relate the history of the confinement and slow death of several millions of Jews in the ghettos.
In order to make your visit easier, buses from the Shoah Memorial in Paris to the Memorial in Drancy are available every Sunday. Departure at 2 pm.
The Center of Contemporary Jewish Documentation (CDJC) continuously gathers documents, photographs, books and magazines related to the fate of European Jews during the Second World War and to the history of the Jewish community before and after the Shoah.
The word "Holocaust" is commonly used in english speaking countries, whereas the Hebrew word "Shoah" which means "catastrophe" is used in France.
