The Holocaust in France @ The Streicker Center

The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center offers special events to challenge, inspire, and engage. We are proud to collaborate and partner for various Streicker Center Events - especially chosen for you!

In June 1940, after a war that lasted less than six weeks, France surrendered to the Germans, leaving the northern half of the country occupied by the Germans and the southern half by the collaborationist Vichy regime. More than 75,000 Jews — one-quarter of the prewar population —-were deported to Nazi death camps. Yet 75 percent of France’s Jews did survive the Nazi occupation. 

This lecture, illustrated with clips from films by Sauvage, a child survivor and producer/writer of the award-winning Weapons of the Spirit, will explore the question of how much credit ordinary French people deserve for that high rate of survival.

In recognition of the deeply personal and often complex nature of identity, we strive to create a community that supports a person’s journey of self-discovery. Addressing a person by their correct pronoun is one way to show our respect.

Tell me more!
If Alex's pronouns are She/Her/Hers, you might say "There's Alex, let's say hi to her."
If Alex's pronouns are They/Them/Theirs, you might say "There's Alex, let's say hi to them."
Other frequently used pronouns are He/Him/His and Ze/Hir/Hirs (pronounced "zee"/"here"/"heres").
But, these are not the only options. The best thing to do is to ask!
