Racisme et répression sous Vichy : le camp d'internement d'Ecrouves

Recounts the story of the camp of Ecrouves, which served as an internment camp in Lorraine between 1941-44. Originally founded by the Vichy government as a detention camp for French communists and members of the Résistance, it subsequently served as a transit camp for ca. 1,800 Jews, mostly from Alsace-Lorraine, during the German occupation. Describes daily life in the camp and outlines the history of the deportation of the Jews of the region. Includes lists of the Jews detained there (pp. 203-241).
