Here is a film extremely dense, deep, moving that allows us to look on a dark period of war. the action takes place in France, Paris, where thousands of Jews were arrested by French police in the heart of summer 1942. Behind this mass arrest (men,women and children are gathered into a huge stadium in inhumane conditions), there is the direct link between the Nazi regime applying to the French Government to deport french Jews and the excess of zeal of French police who will send to death unscrupulously thousands of this people, more than asked by the Nazis themselves ! Few people will return from the death camps. This film, directed by Rose Bosh is excellent and well documented. Because a woman is behind the camera , it gives a special sensitivity to the all thing and explains the way the children for example are filmed. I agree with people who liked this film. Powerful,moving, educational.
