(Click on the image for the trailer)
This is the story of the Rafle du VĂ©lodrome d'Hiver or the episode known as "Vel' d'Hiv Police Roundup / Raid". The most hidden historic event and the cause of the shame of a whole country, France. And it is the story of the 13.152 french jew citizens arrested and deported to Auschwitz for total extermination.
The story is about two women. One little girl named Sarah Starzynski and a grown girl called Julia Jarmond. The little girl living in 1942 and the other one in our times. The first one surviving the death of their family and the other one fighting with the ignorance of the french husband.
Two women living in two different times. Two stories.
And an amazing movie with a splendid photography directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner.
