Jewish Children Deported From Paris July 1942 to August 1944

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

Monsieur Charles Tremil, the gentleman who was the person responsible for getting the French police records on the Vel'D'Hiver roundup July 16-17, 1942  exhibited this summer in Paris sent me an article on the Jewish children deported  from Paris July 1942-August 1944. The article is in French,  This is the link for the article and accompanying map: http://sig.tge-adonis.fr/Paris1942/ . If you want to translate the article into your native language I suggest using Google translate - http://translate.google.com/-its not perfect but you will get the gist of the article.  Below is a summary of the article that I wrote based on the Google translation into English.
Jewish children  were deported from Paris from July 1942 to August 1944.  Between 1942 and 1944, 11,400 Jewish children were arrested in France, including Paris --over 700  in Paris, 4500 including Paris and its suburbs. They were then deported to extermination sites.  The research was done by Serge Klarsfeld.  The article includes a map of where more than 6,000 Jewish children were arrested in central Paris. The map is capable of being expanded if it is accessed directly on the website above-- When you pass the cursor over the address (a tooltip displays the address and access to the list of children.).

The map was made available by the Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah. Points on the map were adapted for World War II , even if today the street names are different and some areas no longer exist due to urban redevelopment,.
If you have any questions regarding the map or the list of children I am not able to answer them -you will have to contact one of the people named under the credits in the article.
