In the Crypt, equal in size to the main hall above, though with space consumed by structural elements, you’ll see the tombs and memorials in various rooms branching out from the main hallway. Simone Veil is buried with her husband, Antoine Veil. They are in the same alcove as Jean Moulin, André Malraux, René Cassin, and Jean Monnet.
