Evidence was presented at the trial of war crimes suspect Maurice Papon indicating that he had ordered the roundup of six hospitalized Jews. The document bolstered the prosecution’s claim that the former official of France’s pro-Nazi Vichy government had shown unwarranted zeal in ordering the arrests of Jews. Meanwhile, the defense presented one document showing that Papon tried to help at least one Jew.
