Holocaust Odysseys

Susan Zuccotti

Yale University Press

This book has chronicled the odysseys of Jewish immigrants and refugees in France and Italy during the Holocaust. There were more deportations and deaths involving recent immigrant and refugee Jews than among Jewish citizens in both countries. Among the Jews who fled from Saint-Martin-Vésubie to Italy, the casualty rate probably exceeded 37 percent. Beyond statistics, the book has also explored other questions regarding the distinct experiences of these Jews, the Vichy regime's internment and forced labor policies for foreign Jews in the unoccupied zone, the movement of some individuals and entire families in and out of concentration camps, and the subsequent fate of Jewish newcomers who managed to escape from the Germans in unoccupied France in August 1942. Moreover, it has investigated how traditional Jewish families have adapted in their struggle for survival.
