Points of light

There's a point of light for each of the 76,000
Parisians who were deported to concentration
camps during WWII.  This memorial at the eastern
end of the Ile de la Cité is a very powerful place.


  1. A very sad reminder of a terrible era.

  2. I didn't know about this installation - but love it. Hope to visit it one day. Great picture!

  3. This is one of the best kept secrets in Paris. One cannot help but be moved in this powerful spot. Interesting -- when you see the long views of the eastern end of the Ile, you see the windows -- no one says, "What IS that?" Now when I see that view, it's almost all I can see, even though my favorite view of Notre Dame takes center view.
