The Round Up

Issue No. 2262

Some 13,000 Parisian Jews were rounded up in July 1942, and taken to the Vel’ d’Hiv stadium.

From here the Nazis and Vichy collaborators transported them to the death camps—first the adults, and then the 3,000 children, who were told their parents were waiting for them.

In reality, they had already been killed.

Roselyne Bosch’s stylish film depicts these weeks of horror, focusing on some of the families whose lives were destroyed.
