Even before the Vichy regime started implementing anti-foreign and anti-Jewish measures in the summer and autumn of 1940, the Jews were already in trouble. The Germans issued an ordinance defining who was to be considered Jewish in their zone of occupation. Throughout 1941 and 1942, things turned for the worse for Jewish immigrants and refugees in the occupied zone as French police began to round up Polish, Czech, and stateless Jewish men throughout Paris. Hundreds of Jews in the occupied zone were arrested for violating (real or imagined) the racial laws or for attempting to cross the demarcation line illegally. Germany was intent on arresting all Jews regardless of nationality, time in France, military service records, or any other possible criteria. This chapter looks at such arrests and describes the experiences of two Jews, Jacques and Paulette Samson.
