About this Item

1/300. Octavo. 262, [2]pp. Uncut and unopened copy. Original printed wrappers with front cover in red and black lettering. Poignant eyewitness account of Julie Crémieux-Dunand, a Red Cross nurse who was interned at Drancy* in 1943 following an anonymous denunciation accusing her of being Jewish and not wearing the yellow star. Julie Crémieux-Dunand was interned 51 days before she could establish that she was not Jewish. During her internment, she observed and documented the horrific conditions prevailing at the camp, and especially the abject treatment of children. This testimony is accompanied with numerous b/w photographic reproductions of various documents, as well as striking illustrations by artist Jeanne Lévy who succeeds to render the inhumanity of the internment camp. One of 300 copies, of which this is No. 211.Spine slightly cocked. Minor age-toning along edges of wrappers. Text in French. Wrappers in overall very good, interior in near fine to fine condition. *Drancy was an assembly and detention camp for confining Jews who were later deported to the extermination camps during the German military administration of Occupied France during World War II. It was located in Drancy, a northeastern suburb of Paris, France. Between June 22, 1942, and July 31, 1944, during its use as an internment camp, 67,400 French, Polish, and German Jews were deported from the camp in 64 rail transports, which included 6,000 children. Only 1,542 remained alive at the camp when Allied forces liberated it on 17 August 1944. Drancy was under the control of the French police until 1943 when administration was taken over by the SS, who placed officer Alois Brunner in charge of the camp. In 2001, Brunner's case was brought before a French court by Nazi hunter Serge Klarsfeld, which sentenced Brunner in absentia to a life sentence for crimes against humanity.
