Abstract:

Accredits the initial compliance of the French Jewish leadership with Vichy and Nazi orders to their faith in the solidity of French legal and liberal traditions. Leaders of the Consistoire and the UGIF, created in 1941, maintained confidential, even friendly relationships with CGQJ president Xavier Vallat until his dismissal in 1942. Between 1943-44 the UGIF was increasingly forced to collaborate with the Nazis. After the war it was accused of sacrificing immigrant Jews to save French Jews and refusing to hide Jewish children in Christian homes. However, even UGIF leaders were deported. Recounts the story of Kadmi Cohen, a Zionist lawyer, who helped work out the second Statute of the Jews in 1941. Together with Vichy leaders, he developed a plan for Jewish emigration to Palestine. Discusses the issue of Jewish kapos in Drancy, especially Oscar Reich, who hunted down Jews in Paris. also discusses Joseph Joinovici, who made a fortune supplying the Wehrmacht with metal and robbing fellow Jews; accuses him of engaging in German counter-espionage.
