1:00 Tour of Henri Dauman: Looking Up Exhibition

Space is limited. Please arrive early to participate and note that we expect a very full tour.

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 France's Jews 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.
