Abstract:

Discusses how the concept of French citizenship was violated by three Vichy laws enacted in 1940, which enabled the regime to deprive French citizens - viewed as "unworthy", "undesirable", or "agents of defeat" - of their citizenship. Between 1940-44, based on these laws, 15,541 Frenchmen, 7,055 of them Jews, were denaturalized, 468 Frenchmen were deprived of their citizenship due to collaboration with de Gaulle's Free France, and 110,000 Jews in Algeria lost their French citizenship with the abrogation of the Crémieux Decree. Highlights the effects of these laws and their role in Vichy's "national revolution" by focusing, inter alia, on the individual cases of Marc and Bella Chagall; the French Jewish singer and songwriter Serge Gainsbourg; the French Jewish jurist, law professor, and judge René Cassin; the Algerian-born, French Jewish philosopher Jacques Derrida; and the Algerian-born, French Jewish journalist and author, Jean Daniel. Landau-Brijatoff also traces the effect of denaturalization on her parents, Adolphe and Bluma Landau, born respectively in Warsaw and in Riga. In 1940 the family left Paris for Perpignan, where the father joined the resistance, and Alix was born in 1942. After the German occupation of southern France, the family went into hiding in Haute-Vienne and later in Aveyron. They were denaturalized in May 1943. After the liberation, they returned to Paris. Concludes that Jews deprived of their citizenship ran a great risk of being interned and, from 1942 on, deported. The deportation of French Jews began later, in 1943, and was much more rare than the deportation of foreign or stateless Jews.
