Memory of a dark chapter in the history of Paris: In the capital occupied since June 1940, the Germans also tried, with help of the Vichy government, to instill the French their ideology. From September 1941 to January 1942, a racist and antisemitic exhibition "Le Juif et la France" ("The Jew and France") took place In the "Palais de Berlitz". By photographs and models, it was tried to suggest to visitors enemy images and stereotypes.

Nowadays, the building houses a cinema.
