So I guess they forgot Terril 189

With a moniker like that, it's hard to see how it could be overlooked!

It needs to be much more specific to qualify.
The definition = "Sites (named locations) where significant events during the course of WWII took place, that played an important role during WWII or which are strongly related to its memory."

I am not seeing the named location (a tangible building/structure) nor a significant event.
Maybe we can find some here, bearing in mind the limited core zone of the Paris WHS (Arc de Triomphe is out for example): https://www.frommers.com/slideshows/848347-places-where-you-can-still-see-evidence-of-the-nazi-occupation-of-paris

We already have "Hitler was here" as a connection for Paris.

I looked at Paris when we did this connection, but no big event really really stood out. The VĂ©lodrome d'hiver Roundup is maybe the most important event from WWII, but it falls outside the core zone.

Apart from that, Paris was more a seat of local power and a place for German soldiers to get away from the front and enjoy themselves.

Here's an unusual connection! The dance music brand Cercle has hosted parties (and since Covid, filmed concerts) at a collection of interesting venues around the world. Including, of course, a bunch of World Heritage sites. I've put together a list of WHS that have hosted a Cercle event:

Mont Saint-Michel (Eelke Kleijn) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wbZEPrFd10
Jaisalmer Fort, Rajasthan (Innellea) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H318p92hfFI
Abu Simbel (WhoMadeWho) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDwAlto-NKU
Great Pyramids of Giza (Sebastien Leger) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SD6GDiyHmbE
Cappadocia (Ben Bohmer) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvRhUHTV_8k
Plitvice Lakes (Disclosure) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=crZfT5qnFdA
Iguazu Falls (Nicola Cruz) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_qqeKC-uak
Dubrovnik (Hot Since 82) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjQmQ00LKSc
Chartres Cathedral (Henrik Schwarz) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51sikDhtEE0
Salar de Uyuni (FKJ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCNlt5nvSI8
La Tour Eiffel (Nina Kraviz) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFvqo1dil7M
Chateau de Chambord (Carl Cox) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdAwiV4T22I
Antique Theatre d'Orange (Solomun) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdAwiV4T22I
Chateau de Fontainebleau (Dubfire) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OyKIa2ODng
Pont du Gard (Nolah) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og9ptCRedwk
Chateau de Chambord (Deborah de Luca) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEbrvMljMCg

I've included the artist name in brackets, along with a YouTube link to the performance. If you're at all interested in dance music it'll probably be quite interesting! Music style is mainly house, techno, minimal, deep house, and synthwave. Personal favourites are the Cappadocia and the Mont Saint-Michel videos if you're looking for somewhere to start!

Very original, Joel!
