I turned a corner in Paris and found this film about a female Resistant in the the window..
This plaque to Henri Chevessieur who ran a clandestine printing press in the Passage Gravilliers during the Occupation. The flowers were fresh.
And this plaque where Raymond Legrand lived before he was arrested and deported to Auschwitz.
But how were these people arrested?
Their names came from lists. Lists and files of Jews made by the Germans. Jews who were arrested by the French police and sent to Camp de Pithivier, Camp de Baume-La-Roland French interment camps.
Most were Eastern Europeans Jews, the majority sent to Drancy, the holding camp outside Paris. The transit camp before deportation to Auschwitz.
And this name...end point unknown.
