Abstract:

This dissertation investigates the connections among the collaborationist Vichy state, with its complex political identity, and the humanitarian aid agency network ... The majority of Jews who survived the war were naturalized French citizens while almost all those deported were foreign born. This striking disparity is partially explained by the activism of a network of Jewish and non-Jewish humanitarian organizations. Humanitarian aid organizations including the International Red Cross (ICRC), the YMCA, the Society of Friends (Quakers), Comité inter-mouvements auprès des evacués (CIMADE), Oeuvre de Secours aux Enfants (OSE), and the Jewish Joint Distribution Agency worked together and independently to find ways to minimize the issues arising from the deportations; these ranged from finding space for displaced persons to saving individuals from the death camps ... -- From the author's abstract.
