Yesterday’s research took me to Memorial de la Shoah.
The Shoah Memorial remembers the 76,000 Jews deported from France, most of whom perished in death camps.
11,000 of them were children.
Almost two years before the Vel D’Hiv roundup, Jewish people regardless of age were required by new laws introduced by the Nazi regime to register their names and addresses at their local police station.
On 16th and 17th July 1942 that information was used to find them and round them up.
From there they were deported to camps like Auschwitz where they were murdered.
