Coveted French Award Given to Authors of Book on Nazi Round-up of Wartime Jews

The Prix Aujourdhui, a literary prize given by a panel of French journalists, has been awarded to "The Great Raid of Velodrome d’Hiver," a book by Claude Levy and Paul Tillard, that depicts the full story of the July 1942 operation in which French Jews were rounded up and deported. The book is the first to describe the role of the French people in rounding up Jews for deportation to death camps.
