Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This is the first English translation of the Diary of Raymond-Raoul Lambert, a leader of the Union of French Jews during WWII who, while bureaucratically involved with the Vichy and Nazi governments, worked to aid and protect fellow Jews. The diary accounts in necessarily circumspect language his own experience and those that he was witness to between 1940 and 1943. His actions eventually resulted in arrest, and he and his family were killed at Auschwitz. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

For years Raymond-Raoul Lambert's Diary has been among the most important untranslated records of the experience of French Jews in the Holocaust. Lambert's Diary survived the war and was published in France in 1985. Although written with the circumspection necessary under the conditions of occupation, it reveals Lambert's efforts to save at least a remnant of the Jews in France. Illustrated with maps and photgraphs.
