Pourquoi Louis Engelmann, raflé à Paris et interné à Compiègne, a-t-il échappé au premier convoi de Juifs parti de France pour le camp d'extermination d'Auschwitz le 27 mars 1942 ? Comment, le 8 août, a-t-il été libéré du camp de transit de Drancy ? Inédit, le journal intime de cet ingénieur, ancien combattant de 1914-1918, révèle les terribles conditions d'internement au camp de Royallieu à Compiègne des notables parisiens juifs raflés le 12 décembre 1941. Il témoigne ensuite de celles du camp de Drancy au moment où affluent les victimes de la rafle dite "du Vel' d'Hiv'" (16-17 juillet 1942). En parallèle, le journal tenu par son épouse Mariette nous fait vivre sa détresse et ses démarches insensées pour arracher Louis à la déportation. Longtemps, les journaux de Louis et Mariette ainsi que les lettres qu'ils ont échangées, sont restés au fond d'un tiroir. Philippe Bernard, leur neveu, journaliste au Monde, les a réunis et entrelacés pour transformer ce drame personnel en un récit haletant. Il tente de comprendre les mécanismes qui ont conduit à l'enfouissement de ces événements dans la mémoire familiale, et les raisons de leur redécouverte récente.

Après la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, une commission de récupération artistique (CRA) est mise en place pour traiter du problème des oeuvres d'art spoliées par les nazis. La France obtient, comme un certain nombre de pays, un retour d'oeuvres restituées d'Etat à Etat. 85 000 demandes sont déposées en France, 61 255 objets artistiques sont retrouvés, 45 000 sont rendus à leurs propriétaires, juifs pour la plupart, mais des tableaux restent orphelins et des propriétaires ne retrouvent pas leur bien. Entre 1950 et 1995, cette histoire est oubliée. Après la chute du mur de Berlin, le dossier des pillages artistiques est à nouveau ouvert. Quel en fut le traitement administratif au ministère des Affaires étrangères ? El son traitement médiatique ? Quelles sont les stratégies de communication des acteurs ? A l'action et l'oubli (1945-1955), succèdent une lente médiatisation (1935-1969), puis un nouveau silence (1969-1996). Enfin arrive l'ère de la communication (1997-2008), pour cette histoire méconnue, qui s'achève avec la commission Mattéoli (1997) et une nouvelle vague de restitutions et d'indemnisations en application des principes - non contraignants - de Washington (1998) acceptés par la France.

The main aim of this text, originally published in 1970, was to widen the debate on the nature of fascism. The author argues that fascism was an integral stage in the historical and economical development of Europe and that its political and economic expression cannot be meaningfully separated. Its impact for Europe had obvious far-reaching consequences and the very survival of the National Socialist revolution lay in the re-organization of Europe - the New Order.

Death in the City of Light is the gripping, true story of a brutal serial killer who unleashed his own reign of terror in Nazi-Occupied Paris. As decapitated heads and dismembered body parts surfaced in the Seine, Commissaire Georges-Victor Massu, head of the Brigade Criminelle, was tasked with tracking down the elusive murderer in a twilight world of Gestapo, gangsters, resistance fighters, pimps, prostitutes, spies, and other shadowy figures of the Parisian underworld. The main suspect was Dr. Marcel Petiot, a handsome, charming physician with remarkable charisma. He was the “People’s Doctor,” known for his many acts of kindness and generosity, not least in providing free medical care for the poor. Petiot, however, would soon be charged with twenty-seven murders, though authorities suspected the total was considerably higher, perhaps even as many as 150. Who was being slaughtered, and why? Was Petiot a sexual sadist, as the press suggested, killing for thrills? Was he allied with the Gestapo, or, on the contrary, the French Resistance? Or did he work for no one other than himself? Trying to solve the many mysteries of the case, Massu would unravel a plot of unspeakable deviousness. When Petiot was finally arrested, the French police hoped for answers. But the trial soon became a circus. Attempting to try all twenty-seven cases at once, the prosecution stumbled in its marathon cross-examinations, and Petiot, enjoying the spotlight, responded with astonishing ease. His attorney, René Floriot, a rising star in the world of criminal defense, also effectively, if aggressively, countered the charges. Soon, despite a team of prosecuting attorneys, dozens of witnesses, and over one ton of evidence, Petiot’s brilliance and wit threatened to win the day. Drawing extensively on many new sources, including the massive, classified French police file on Dr. Petiot, Death in the City of Light is a brilliant evocation of Nazi-Occupied Paris and a harrowing exploration of murder, betrayal, and evil of staggering proportions.

In the summer of 1942, when Jews throughout France were being rounded up and sent to concentration camps, twelve-year-old Simon Jeruchim, his older sister, and his younger brother were sent into hiding in separate foster homes around the countryside of Normandy. Their parents, unbeknownst to the children, were arrested and deported to Auschwitz, where they perished.Thus the young refugees avoided arrest, but they were still not safe from the ravages of the war. Staying alive meant affecting a gentile identity, even going to Mass on Sundays. Living conditions were harsh, and the far work was heavy and difficult; but even worse were the loneliness,, isolation, uncertainty, and fear that dogged young Simon day and night.After the war Simon was reunited with his siblings. They were placed in a series of homes for Jewish children,and in 1949 they were sent to begin news lives in America. Here is a story of the courage of children and compassion of strangers, and a view of the barely comprehensible events of war from the vantage point of shattered innocence. "Hidden in France"is, above all, a story of survival and perseverance against all odds.
