The Round-Up (La Rafle)
June 2, 2011
1942. Joseph is 11 years old. On this June morning, he must go to school with a yellow star stitched to his chest. Amidst kindliness or contempt, Jo, his Jewish friends and their families make a fresh start to their lives in occupied Paris, on the hill in Montmartre where they have found refuge, or so they believe. On July 16, 1942, when their fragile happiness is shattered... The Round-Up charts the real-life destiny of the victims and their persecutors. All the events, even the most extreme, really took place in that summer of 1942. In French with subtitles.
