Description: Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a ten year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours. Paris, May 2002: On Vel' d'Hiv's 60th anniversary, journalist Julia Jarmond is asked to write an article about this black day in France's past.

An American journalist, married to a Frenchman and living in Paris, is asked to research and write a story for the sixtieth commemoration of the Vil' dHiv', the night in 1942 when Jewish families were rounded up by French police to be sent to Germany. Eight-year-old Sarah seeks to protect her younger ...
