Jewish Survival and Rescue in Occupied France, Day 2


Thursday March 5

Time (Eastern Time)

5:30 PM  –  9:00 PM

In Nazi-occupied France, nearly 75% of the Jews were able to survive the Holocaust despite the complicity of the Vichy government with the German authorities. This can be explained by the implementation of rescue networks by the Jews themselves, with the help of the population in certain "refuge" regions. This conference is part of “France and Judaism: 2,000 Years of Intertwined History,” a series organized by the Consulate General of France in New York

Day 2 Speakers: 
Pierre Sauvage, filmmaker, whose newly remastered documentary Weapons of the Spirit will be shown and discussed 
Nathalie Heinich, sociologist and Le Chambon expert 
Michèle Cone, former resident of Le Chambon

*Day 2 will conclude with a screening of this film.

Free; advance registration recommended for both days
