The Exhibition rooms

The permanent exhibition (level -1) is made up of 12 chronological and thematic sequences tracing the history of the Jews of France during the Holocaust. Two areas regularly host temporary exhibitions, a precious mediation tool for the Memorial: the Isaac Schneersohn Room and the Léon Poliakov Room, named after the founder of the Centre de Documentation Juive Contemporaine (Contemporary Jewish Documentation Center) and one of the first Holocaust historians, respectively.
