Looking for Rivesaltes camp arrest record or other documentation for my grandfather Moses GOLDSTEIN #france #holocaust

Hello!  First, many thanks to this group for your thoughtful responses to my previous post looking for Carmen Kinderfreund.  I connected with her daughter and we had an hour long conversation which filled in some blanks in my late father's story.

Here I am again with another query to put to all you crack researchers:

My grandfather, Moses GOLDSTEIN was deported to Auschwitz from Drancy, France, on 6 November 1942.  He was sent to Drancy from the camp at Rivesaltes, France.  I am looking for any arrest record or other documentation showing his path from his (up until that point) secure residence in Nice to Rivesaltes.  The last letter my father received from him is dated 23 September 1942, only 6 weeks before his very final journey.

I know the USHMM has a list of all deportees from Rivesaltes and perhaps such arrest data would be included but they are closed right now and the list seems only available on microfilm, necessitating a visit, impossible at the moment.

Best wishes to all of you from New York.
