FOREIGNERS IN THE ALPES-MARITIMES AS SEEN THROUGH PREFECTORAL DOCUMENTS, 1860-1944 Ph.D. Dissertation, by Jean Kleinmann The case of the Jews is presented on its own, since identifying them was indeed simple: police files were stamped with a "J" or "JEW". The presence of Jews in Nice and in the entire (administrative) department is particularly strong, estimated at between 20,000 and 25,000 persons, with a considerable level of movement within the area, compared to other regions. The nearby Italian border, clandestine crossings of same, forced relocations and internments in French concentration camps, arrests made under the Vichy government, aryanisation of Jewish goods and property, a certain level of protection the part of the Italian occupying forces compared with the ferocity which then followed under the German occupation —all make the presence and the outcomes of these Jews a special case in the overall picture of French persecution.

The Ghetto Fighters' House The Ghetto Fighters' House – Itzhak Katzenelson Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Heritage Museum was founded in 1949 by a community of Holocaust survivors, members of the Jewish underground in the ghettos of Poland, and veterans of partisan units, to be a place of testimony that would tell the story of the Jewish People in the 20th century in general, and during the Second World War in particular. At the center of this chronicle are the manifestations of Jewish resistance: the organized uprisings of Jews in the ghettos and camps, and the Jews who fought in partisan units and the armies of the Allied forces.

While many, many books have been written on the Shoah, and more and more individual testimonies are being heard from the now-called "last remaining" witnesses, analyses of the dark years of the Nazi occupation from a regional perspective are in fact quite rare. The remarkable study undertaken by Michaël Iancu on Montpellier and the surrounding region during the "leaden years" thus fills an important gap. Focusing on the French administrative department of the Hérault, it offers original insight in the the tragic period of 1940-1944.
