The Vichy Police

France 2017 | 94 minutes | French | Hebrew subtitles

The Vichy Police shows how top Vichy law enforcement officials served as willing collaborators in the rounding up and deportation of Jews during WW2. Making use of previously unseen materials, the film retraces the role of the French police, in which tens of thousands of Jews were handed over to the Germans during WW2. Of special note is the only known photograph of the velodrome during the roundup, which filmmaker David Korn Brzoza obtained and is seen here for the first time.
