Heroines of Vichy France: Rescuing Jewish Children during the Holocaust

Heroines of Vichy France (Professor Paul Bartrop)

Lecture by Paul R Bartrop, Professor of History, Director of the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, Florida Gulf Coast University.

In the Haute-Savoie region of south-eastern France during World War II, young Jewish resisters, mostly women in their early twenties who either knew or knew of each other, risked their lives to save Jewish children from the Holocaust. In 1943, they were given the mission of smuggling Jewish children to Switzerland and collectively they would save hundreds of children. In this lecture, Professor Paul Bartrop will discuss the actions of these rescuers.
