In July 1942, French authorities who were Nazi accomplices carried out an extensive raid of Jews in greater Paris, resulting in the arrest of more than 13,000 people, including 4,000 children. "La Rafle" (2010) is based on the true story of a young Jewish boy involved in the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup. This film allows the audience to better understand the impacts of World War II on France and its role in the Holocaust.

Philip Whalen, CCU professor of history, leads a discussion following the screening to provide historical context for the film.
