Nearly 13,000 Jews were arrested in the Paris region on the 16th and 17th of July 1942, 8,000 of whom were sent to the ``Vélodrome d'Hiver`` sports hall before being deported. This was by far the largest roundup conducted by the French police in the occupied France. There is no other equivalent in Western Europe. Based on new research, this film, combining testimonies of the last survivors, animated scenes and archive images, redraws the story of this dreadful operation.
