Solid hardcover. ; First American Edition, First Printing of this chilling picture of French collaboration with the Nazis. "The day was July 16, 1942. The plot was part of "Operation Spring Wind". The result was the roundup, in one day, of 12,884 Jews living in France at the time of the German Occupation. Seized without warning, men, women, children, and old people, invalids too, were piled into buses and taken to a Paris sports arena, the Velodrome d'Hiver, on the first stage of a journey toward death at Auschwitz. ... Although there were Frenchmen who cared about and helped the hhunted, the book in the main insists that we face terrible truths: the French police carried out the orders of the Germans with efficiency and without mercy. Many French citizens saw their neighbors taken away without batting an eye. ... No one will read this book without reacing to it both with disbelief and with the horror that comes from believing." ; xiii, 284 pages.
