Abstract:

Discusses the fate of 44 Jewish children hidden at a safe house in Izieu (eastern France), who were arrested and deported by the Nazis. Describes the child rescue network in France (e.g. the Oeuvre de Secours aux Enfants), the establishment of the colony in Izieu in June 1943, the daily life of the children there, and the cooperation of the local population. Relates the Nazi persecution campaign in the area, beginning in September 1943, culminating with the arrest and deportation of the children in April 1944. Discusses responsibility for this crime, besides Klaus Barbie (who was tried and convicted for it) - i.e. the Wehrmacht and local French collaborators. Refers, also, to recent commemoration of the victims.
