TO THE MODERATOR : there was an error in the link given in that
posting, that's why I submit it to you again, as I was asked for by
the moderator in duty for Jewishgen. Sorry !

This is a one time permitted announcement of an important research book.
It is known that during WW II about 76,000 Jews, including 11,000
children, were deported >from France. But what is not so well-known
is that there were an additional 85,000 others, deported as
Resistance, hostages, etc., in which were also included many Jews,
which the Nazis did not realize.
While Serge Klarsfeld has documented the 76,000 known Jews in his
book, there was, until recently, no research and documentation for
the other 85,000 individuals

After some seven years the Fondation pour la Memoire de la
Deportation has just published a
long-anticipated set of memorial volumes , in French, which lists
these 85,000, missing for over 60 years. The title is, "Le
livre-memorial des deportes de France arretes par mesure de
repression et dans certains cas par mesure de persecution -
1945-1945." [The memorial book of deportes >from France, arrested as
repressive measures and in certain cases as a method of

This work consists of 4 volumes , each about 1500 pages. On each
page there is a table that lists for each deporte, the number in the
camp (when known), family name, first name, sex, date of birth,
place of birth, nationality, entire route( camps in which interned)
stauts (deceased, survivor, unknown) date of release or date of
death, place of release or death, comments.

While these books contain mainly the names of non-Jewish resistants
or hostages, there are still many who were Jewish, but who were
arrested as Resistants. Many listings have never been published
before, and may provide a clue to those who are still seeking some
information for missing family.
