Jewish survival and rescue in occupied France

4th March 2020 - 5th March 2020

In Nazi-occupied France, nearly 75 % of the Jews were able to survive the Holocaust despite of the complicity of the Vichy government with the German authorities. This can be explained by a number of factors, particularly the implementation of rescue networks by the Jews themselves, with the help of the population in certain “refuge” regions.

On March 4 and 5, eight speakers will gather to discuss the place of the Jews under the Vichy regime and try to understand why and how this uncommon situation could have happened.
