Jewish Survival and Rescue in Occupied France, Day 1


Wednesday March 4

Time (Eastern Time)

5:00 PM  –  8:30 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 1 Speakers:
Jacques Semelin, historian and expert of France’s occupation during World War II
Patrick Cabanel, historian of Protestantism in France
Johanna Lehr, political scientist specializing in Jewish resistance
