80 years on: Remembering the July 1942 deportations from France
The 16 and 17 July marks the 80 year anniversary of the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup – the mass arrest of Jewish families by French Police under the order of the Nazi authorities in Paris. Thousands of Jewish residents including more than 4000 children were held at the Velodrome d’Hiver before being transported to extermination camps across Europe.
The Adelaide Holocaust Museum will mark the Roundup anniversary by presenting 80 years on: remembering the July 1942 deportations from France. The In Conversation event features a range of expert speakers including: Dr Amy Morrison, Curator Centre for Democracy; Katherine Goode; second generation survivor; Associate Professor Vesna Drapac, The University of Adelaide; Dr Lisa Harper Campbell, an independent researcher specialising in French screen and drama studies. In addition, Dr Gareth Pritchard, The University of Adelaide, will facilitate a speaker panel discussion and Q and A.
Lisa will be discussing and reading excerpts from her book “Reframing Remembrance – Contemporary French cinema and the Second World War”, which can be purchased from Manchester University Press here, and enter MEMOIRE to receive 40% discount.
A free guided tour of AHMSEC’s permanent exhibition is included and will commence at 2 pm.
