Abstract:

A history of the Vél d'Hiv roundup of 15-16 July 1942, published by the Paris municipality in commemoration. Traces the escalation of events between October 1940-July 1942, describes the roundup, and analyzes why it failed to reach its goal - the arrest of 27,391 Jews of foreign origin. 13,000 Jews, including women and children, were, however, rounded up and interned under harsh conditions at the former sports stadium or at Drancy before they were deported to Auschwitz. Some 7,000 women and children were taken from Drancy and Vel d'Hiv to other French internment camps, from which the women were sent to Auschwitz, while the children were returned to Paris, only to be deported from there later on. Emphasizes that many Jews survived thanks to their active resistance and the help of the local populace, who warned of impending roundups and provided shelter.
