  • This seems to be a hidden gem near the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Our group was the only ones there on a midday. This really hits home to how impactful WWII was and the impact that the Nazi's had in such an outreaching area. It really makes you understand how life was like for everyone in the early 1940's. Some of the information will astound everyone. For a WWII student this will really shine as a place to have to stop by in Paris. It is a very emotional place.
  • Nice architectural design. Convenient to visit.
