Over the Bridge and towards Tour Eiffel

I would too – they did hold that “kiss” for about 30 seconds as the guy that took the pictures was super slow

Memorial for the Deported in the 2nd World War. More than 200.000 people got deported from Vichy France to the Nazi concentration camps.
Wikipedia: “A circular plaque on the floor of the underground chamber is inscribed: “They descended into the mouth of the earth and they did not return.” Along both walls of the narrow chamber are 200,000 crystals with light shining through meant to symbolize each of the deportees who died in the concentration camps; at the end of the tunnel is a single bright light. Either side of the chamber are small rooms that seem to depict prison cells. Opposite the entrance is a stark iron gate overlooking the Seine at the tip of the Þle de la Cité.

A “flame of eternal hope” burns and The Tomb of the Unknown Deportee bears the inscription: “Dedicated to the living memory of the 200,000 French deportees sleeping in the night and the fog, exterminated in the Nazi concentration camps.”

At the exit to the chamber is the injunction, engraved, found at all sites memorializing the victims of the Nazis: “Forgive but never forget.””

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
