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.
