Evento de Yad Yashem Jerusalén: Online Exhibition: Letters to 43 Vieille du Temple Street



We invite you to visit the online exhibition “Paris, 1942: Three Jewish Families”, that highlights the stories of the Sebbanes, the Polakiewiczs and the Zonszajns –who were living in the same residential building at 43 Vieille du Temple St. in the fourth arrondissment (district) of Paris, then a busy Jewish neighborhood comprising mainly eastern European immigrants. Most of the families in the area, including the Polakiewiczs and the Zonszajns, were arrested on 16 July 1942 in the infamous Vel d’Hiv roundup. The Sebbanes’ names were not on the lists, probably due to their native French origins. Neighbors wrote to Mrs. Sebbane describing their ordeal and asking for help as the other Jewish residents at 43 Vieille du Temple St. had already been detained. In this exhibition, we follow the destinies of these three families from that fateful day in 1942, via testimonies, photographs, and letters sent to Mrs. Sebbane. Click here to visit the exhibition
