Though commonly referred to as a Holocaust memorial, this is officially called the "Deportation Memorial," euphemistically dedicated to "French citizens" deported by the Nazis during World War II. The monument makes scant reference to Jews, who made up the vast majority of French citizens who were deported and never returned. (See Vichy France and the Jews for a discussion of France's shameful involvement in the Holocaust.) Located at the tip of the Ile de la Cite.
