Bad faith : a forgotten history of family, fatherland and Vichy France by Carmen Callil( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bad Faith tells the story of one of history's most despicable villains and con men - Louis Darquier de Pellepoix, Nazi collaborator and "Commissioner for Jewish Affairs" in France's Vichy government. Darquier set about to eliminate Jews in France with brutal efficiency, delivering 75,000 men, women, and children to the Nazis and confiscating Jewish property, which he used for his own gain. Carmen Callil's riveting and sometimes darkly comic narrative reveals Darquier as a self-obsessed fantasist who found his metier in propagating hatred - a career he denied to his dying day - and traces the heartrending consequences for his daughter Anne of her poisoned family legacy. A brilliant meld of epic sweep and psychological insight, Bad Faith is a startling history of our times."--Back cover

Bad faith : a story of family and fatherland by Carmen Callil( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bad Faith tells the story of one of history's most despicable villains and conmen - Louis Darquier 'de Pellepoix', Nazi collaborator and 'Commissioner for Jewish Affairs', who managed the Vichy government's dirty work, 'controlling' its Jewish population." "Born into an established, politically moderate family, Louis Darquier ('de Pellepoix' was a later affectation) proceeded from modest beginnings to dissemble his way to power, continually reinventing himself in conformity with an obsession with racial purity and the latent anti-Semitism of the French Catholic Church. As Commissioner for Jewish Affairs he was responsible, with other men of Vichy, for the despatch of Jews to the death camps and for the confiscation of their property. Thousands of children went alone to the gas chambers. After the Second World War he decamped to Spain, never to be brought to justice." "Early on in his career he married the alcoholic Myrtle Jones from Tasmania, equally practised in the arts of fantasy and deception, and together they had a child, Anne Darquier, whom they promptly abandoned to grow up in England under a mantle of silence. Her tragic story is woven through the narrative." "In Carmen Callil's account, Darquier's ascent to power during the years leading up to the Second World War mirrors the rise of French anti-Semitism."--BOOK JACKET
