“Operation Yellow Star/Black Thursday” in H-France Review

OYS_BTH-France, a journal on French history and culture, notes that Operation Yellow Star/Black Thursday is “an interesting view into the field of investigative journalism as we follow the author’s steps to find more information at the Archives de la Préfecture de Police de Paris [which] exposes the reluctance of the French police to come to terms with its own past. He also emphasizes the various problems faced by researchers studying the era in terms of access to archival material. This investigation touches on numerous issues of memory such as the role of bystanders and their apparent indifference, not only at the time of the events, but also as a memory of shameful collaboration.”
