Paris – Allée des Justes

A 60 metre stretch of road bordering the Shoah Memorial, in the Marais, once known as the Rue Grenier sur l’Eau, renamed ‘Allée des Justes‘ in June 2006, in tribute to those that did not forget the meaning of community.

A pity our supreme court did.

PS: I was amazed when my post on the Death Railway touched a chord with one of my readers, who happened to be the descendant of a victim! It happened again today, when Multifarious Meanderings’ comment below, led me to this remarkable tribute to her grandmother in law, who, along with her husband, risked everything to help a friend in need!

    1. I tell myself I should not bring politics into this essentially travel blog, but I can’t help myself when I get incensed about some things 🙂 Thanks for reading Tina.

  1. A very serious and thoughtful take on ‘community.’ I liked Le Marais and loved wandering around there but don’t remember seeing that so it’s nice to read about it and see it on your blog.

  2. a very sobering post Madhu, and thanks for the link to the Supreme Court story … oh dear, our laws lag so far behind when it comes to social change …

Let me know what you think
