A poster on a play by Philippe Ogouz for the Lavoir Moderne Parisien theater, dealing with the Vél d’Hiv roundup. On July 16 and 17, 1942, at the Velodrome d’Hiver in Paris, the French police gathered more than 8,000 Jewish people, including 4,000 children. This roundup, followed by the deportation, is one of the most significant events in the anti-Semitic persecution committed by the Vichy authorities.
