In 1943, the Centre de Documentation Juive Contemporaine (CDJC) – or, the Contemporary Jewish Documentation Center – began to archive evidence of the persecution European Jews faced 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. Today, the Shoah Memorial brings together people from all over the world, from different backgrounds and interests. It contains a museum, which is home to various exhibits, events, research archives, and speakers each year, and provides educational programs and sponsored trips. Each of these connected facets of the Memorial is 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 first-hand are entrusting their memories and stories to younger generations.
