The Cohen Center is pleased to be partnering with the Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University to present a special online event this April. Professional development credits for educators are available.

Event Description: On July 16-17, 1942 in Occupied Paris, more than 13,000 French Jews were arrested by French Police. The victims were held in deplorable conditions at the Vélodrome d'Hiver or Vel d'Hiv, an indoor cycling stadium until they were sent to detainment camps outside of Paris where they either died or were deported to concentration camps. Dr. Eileen Angelini’s presentation will discuss how the Vichy Government planned this round-up and how the French government and people have since dealt with the pain.
