Summer 1942 marked the beginning of mass deportations of Jews from French soil to Auschwitz-Birkenau. For the first time, women and children were arrested in large numbers. By the end of July, the need to fill quotas led the authorities to deport parents from the internment camps without their children. Left alone to fend for themselves for a few more weeks, the children were ultimately deported as well.

Led by Yad Vashem’s Emmanuelle Moscovitz, this webinar will shed light on the infamous Vélodrome d'hiver roundup and the family separation that ensued. Conserved in the Yad Vashem archives, we will analyze some of the letters written by deportees to their loved ones.
