Looting, Restitution, and Reconstructing Jewish Lives in France, 1942-1947

Shannon L. Fogg

  • Focuses on the individual stories of Jewish Holocaust survivors in France as they tried to rebuild their lives after World War II
  • Demonstrates that Jewish survivors were not silent victims, but rather sought to rebuild their society by seeking recognition of their losses, playing active roles in politics, and turning to the government and each other for aid
  • Offers a French perspective, where most similar studies focus on Germany
  • Draws on a broad range of sources, including memoirs, oral histories, restitution claims, social workers' reports, newspapers, and government documents
