Shoah Memorial, Paris, Isle-de-France #general

I wouldn't give too much weight to information on such a memorial, since
it doesn't give sufficient identifying information, let alone sources.
Besides, carved stone is hard to edit. As I recall, there's more than
one obvious misspelling on that memorial.

For your sort of question we have the German Memorial Book. (I'm
presuming your great-aunt was German.)

A quick search shows 16 Rosa ROSENBERGs. >from what you've said elsewhere
I'd guess that you're referring to Rosa ROSENBERG geb. LEVI, born in
Berolzheim on 13 Dec 1894.

If you have evidence that they have the wrong date at the Gedenkbuch
site, they'll accept corrections with supporting evidence. In this case
they may owe you an explanation, because they seem to have two different
dates and places of death.

Some of my relatives who died during the Holocaust have ancestry.com
"hints" which link them to the Shoah Memorial at Isle-de-France. The
birth dates only give years and are not quite right. Is there any way to
find out more information to find out if these are my relatives.
Example:
My great-aunt Rosa LEVI ROSENBERG was born in 1895. The date on the
Shoah memorial says Rosa ROSENBERG was born in 1900 and died in 1942. We
know she perished in the Shoah but not when. The information is on
find-a-grave.

Does anyone know how to find out if this is my relative. I could not
find how to contact the memorial and have no idea how to proceed. Should
I assume it is not my relative due to the date? But how would they know
if the exact date of someone who died in the Holocaust.

Thank you so much,
