Abstract:

Compares the functioning of two public insitutions which played a major role in the persecution of Jews in France. The commissariat général aux Questions juives (CGQJ), created by Vichy in 1941, was the main initiator of anti-Jewish legislation. As of 1941, it also took charge of carrying out the despoilment of the Jews' property and goods. The "service juif" of the Paris Police headquarters (PP) employed 150 special agents and was responsible for the control, identification, and registration of the Jews. It also organized the Vél d'Hiv roundup in July 1942. Distinguishes between various types of institutional logic behind the antisemitic policies carried out between 1940-42. These gradually transformed a policy initially conceived as exceptional, and motivated by the need to respond to German demands, into a relatively autonomous French policy. Discusses strategies used by officials in the CGQJ and the PP to advance their careers. In regard to the CGQJ, focuses also on the tension between administrative antisemitism and ordinary bureaucratic functions. Examines the postwar memory of Vichy's antisemitic policies from 1944 to 1996, including how the officials of the two organizations adapted to peace-time political and moral norms and the affair of the "fichier juif", which was ostensibly destroyed but was recovered in 1991 by Serge Klarsfeld, testifying to the failure of the French administration to take responsibility for its past.
