All other sites close at Jerusalem,pp. Fifty years of research and scholarship have laid the groundwork for understanding and interpreting the fate of French Jews during World War II.

In general the contours of that catastrophe are well known and historians have covered many of the major crucial problems of the period.

Jewish organizations have also been the focus of many different studies, as have specific questions relating to such broad issues as the Jewish underground, the rescue of children, detention camps, universities, etc. In addition, a fair number of important studies have been conducted on specific French cities or regions during the war, almost all of which devote attention to the Jewish population and its fate.

Recent years have also seen an increase in the publication of memoirs and testimonies by both Jews and non-Jews, significantly contributing to the documentary evidence of the period. However, based on this broad scholarly infrastructure, current historical research can now allow itself to pursue new horizons and introduce original perspectives and innovative approaches, placing themes or subjects extensively studied into sharper focus while opening windows to experiences and worlds of a different nature.

Her book rests on the foundations laid by her predecessors, accepts in general the framework of the period and its central problems, and does not endeavor to challenge accepted conventions. Rather it turns the spotlight on Alltagsgeschichte daily life in the spirit of the Annales school of historians.

This is total history, from the bottom up, a history that enables multiple voices to be heard — be it the voice of a fourteen-year old girl who, in Aprilchose the figure of Queen Esther as a role model pp.

No single voice is considered more important than any other.

No distinction is made between rich and poor, the sophisticated and the unworldly, the educated and the unschooled, those active in Jewish organizations and those unaffiliated with Jewish society. Thus, throughout this very personal book, in which the inner voice of the author is clearly evident — at times angry and mocking, at others cynical and ironic, but always humane and empathetic see, e. And this voice always reveals something of the human world whose end is unknown, while drawing us in, impelling us to want to know more about the fate of that world.

The author is not only concerned with writing the history of the daily life of Jews in France during the war, but is also driven by another motivation. Others feared that the concentration on daily life would impede historians from penetrating the true meaning of those momentous times.

In fact, various studies on the daily life of Jews in different countries have largely shown these fears to be unfounded, and they have provided yet further insight into the evolution of Jewish life in different countries and situations.

To be a Jew in France my emphasis – RIC in the spirit of French existentialism means to hear the multiple voices of human beings and the entire array of their feelings and desires in a world of diminished humanity. As Camus put it:. In a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land.

Poznanski makes no mention of Camus, the existential world, or the absurd. But her allusions evoke the absurd. In another place, in a description of the events of the summer ofthe tragic days of the arrested Jews in the winter stadium, which followed the mass roundup of the Jews of Paris and its environs, Poznanski writes:.

This is what the hell of the winter stadium looked like, a fabric of torment that lasted three days for some of the prisoners, and six for others. On July 22, the stadium was emptied of the last of its temporary residents and restored to its original purpose. Less than two months later, Parisian cinema goers could enjoy the exciting pictures filmed in the winter stadium — the acts of courage of the glorious matadors facing their inflamed bulls in the corridas organized there.


The day-to-day life of the Jews cannot be understood unless it is seen side by side the ordinary lives of those who were not subject to the same threat and decrees. In this way, the author succeeded in transmitting to the reader the sense of the absurd — the individual is suddenly dispossessed of the scenery to which he or she had become accustomed. Portrayal of daily albertt requires attention to numerous minute details on the one mamyu and to well-known places on the other hand.

When describing a place significant to an author, he or she cannot remain disinterested and devoid of emotion. She wants us to sense their insult, individuals so closely attached to those Parisian sites, and to reflect on the sense of belonging – to their country – of which they were robbed.

I would go so far as to say that, in doing so, the author is also expressing kamuy anger at the fact that the French and the Germans contaminated those very places, ablert symbolize the glory of French culture. Memory will no longer allow one to visit those places without recalling those who stood there in their hour of humiliation.

This type of history cannot leave the reader unmoved. She is also aware that at a time when post-modernist approaches have granted the individual voice center stage and increased legitimacy, it is all the more difficult to maintain a proper balance.

And this tension may be especially great where the Holocaust period is concerned, because the danger in overly personalized writing lies in a potential loss of proportions and a return to the albrt and unexacting history that characterized the study of the Holocaust for many years. The names of the twelve chapters of the book demonstrate how Poznanski carefully walks this thin kamyyu.

The reader will not find a substantially original treatment of the decrees against the Jews, a basically new understanding of the Vichy regime, or even of the German and Italian authorities. They are seen here as part of the extensive mosaic that she has created. Poznanski has described the history of the Jews of France although not the history of the Jews under French rule in North Africa [!

The desire to touch on all the feelings and to hear all the voices presents the better-known ones in a new and enlightening context, yet it inhibits hasty generalizations and unequivocal conclusions. As a result, the author herself feels sometimes helpless when attempting to create a synthesis.

For example, after presenting a series of reactions by Jews to the decree requiring lamyu to wear the yellow star, Poznanski writes: Or, after illustrating the attitude of Parisian society to the Jews in connection with the same decree she concludes: As Poznanski uses material from every available source she takes us to places readers rarely visit when reading about French Jewry.

A researcher seeking to describe all the various strata of Jewish society can call on a huge reservoir of sources, and Poznanski makes use of every type of source. She is not albrt in her work with the possible debate over the preference of one historical source over another. Reports by contemporaries, letters from a son to a father, diaries albwrt by Jews and yav of the period, memoirs, etc.

The author, however, always maintains a general picture of the period. aalbert

The excerpts selected from the extensive material she examined often underscore the human aspect, so that even an incriminating bureaucratic order handed down in the occupied area by the general prefect of police, Jean Leguay on August 3,is revealed in all its evil p.

Even when the author discusses the subject of public opinion in France, she does not choose the well-known sources from the professional literature.

“Ordinary Life” in Extraordinary Times

Furthermore, she does not omit descriptions that historians often skip over, because, for her, the minutest details — which seemingly have no historical value — contain the alvert significance of the period. She was to walk in front of yax, but if anything happened to her, if she was arrested along the way, she was to carry on walking whatever happened, without looking round.

Human acts of every nature are noted and recorded. People gave their children patriotic French names even when the war was at its height. Poznanski mentions such details, which only rarely merit the attention of historians, often without comment, as if to say — their words say everything.



A contemporary scholar cannot but shudder at the fact that the Jews placed alhert and nobility at the top of their reactions to their persecution, a persecution that of course culminated in the death camps. Matters of religion and tradition are also woven naturally into the overall picture, because, aalbert Poznanski, it is important to know not only on what kinds of beds the Jews slept in the Rivesaltes camp, but also what the observant Jews ate, how many religious lessons they received in the camp, whether rabbis permitted greater leniency concerning religious commandments for Jews in the camp, and so on.

And like other good Annales researchers, despite her involvement in minute details she never loses sight of the general picture. On the contrary, she maintains historical continuity, discusses the principal events of the period, describes various Jewish activist organizations, their attempts to provide aid and assistance, etc.

As already noted, To Be a Jew in France follows the chronological structure set by its kamyk. This enables us to view the dilemmas the Jews faced and their difficulty in choosing a particular mode of behavior in a clearer light.

This is true for the early chapters of the book, which describe the manner in which the Jews dealt with their ostracization and discrimination, as well as in the later chapters, lamyu they were faced with the danger of arrest and deportation. Poznanski impressively manages to balance the public events with the more prosaic details of individual lives, such as requests for a food package or a warm blanket, without allowing the individual suffering to be dwarfed by the larger events.

And the opposite is no less true. Poznanski documents the antisemitic literature during the war and examines the extent to which it influenced the French people, while at the same time, based on the behavior of individuals, inquires into its inculcation. She also points out how the situation of the Jews influenced the policies and behavior of the various Jewish organizations.

Similarly, when discussing the effects of the hard times alert the French people, she continually refers to the existential problem of the outcast. In this spirit her comments on pagecomparing the situation of the Jews of Paris with that of the non-Jews living there, are an attempt to put both worlds kzmyu a comparative focus.

This short review cannot present comprehensively the full array of the contents of the book which contains pages of text and dozens of pages of notes. Each chapter endeavors to provide the reader with as broad a xlbert as possible of the different predicament of the various groups of Jews: Even these categories do not embrace the wide variety of albfrt in the book.

In each and every chapter the reader encounters ever-more experiences and sentiments of Jews and non-Jews presented from an all-encompassing perspective on their worlds. Its unique contribution lies in the fact that it focuses more sharply than any previous study on the Kamtu fate in all its complexity. As I have yxd the author did not endeavor to present a new picture of French policy, French public opinion, or Jewish communal organization. Yet each of these three basic topics is cast in new and insightful light on the basis of previously untapped sources — their actions and decisions often linked to the day-to-day experiences of Jews and the French people.
