Between the French defeat in 1940 and liberation in 1944, the Nazis killed almost 80,000 of France's Jews, both French and foreign, a history that is well documented. Yet 75% of them survived the war, a much higher rate than in neighboring countries. Renowned French historian and psychologist Jacques Sémelin has sought to uncover why and how and has published his findings in his book, The Survival of the Jews in France. Join us for a special afternoon with Professor Sémelin, who will discuss stories of resistance, resilience, and survival among the Jews in Nazi-occupied and Vichy France.
