From legal procedures to collective forgetting
Johanna Lehr

This article seeks to show that the bodies of Jewish people who died in the Drancy internment camp between 1941 and 1944 were handled on French soil in a doubly normalised manner: first by the police and judicial system, and then in relation to funeral arrangements. My findings thus contradict two preconceived ideas that have become firmly established in collective memory: first, the belief that the number who died in the Drancy camp is difficult to establish; and second, the belief that the remains of internees who died in the camp were subjected to rapid and anonymous burial in a large mass grave in Drancy municipal cemetery.

great-uncle Julius were about to visit them in the Rivesaltes camp in September 1942, but learned that they had just been deported. I already knew that Leo and Meta were deported from Drancy camp to Auschwitz on 16 September 1942 – from the transport list available online through the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris, and from the Stolpersteine in Busenberg. I assumed both were murdered immediately on arrival.

to take him in, and eventually he was arrested. We have two different accounts of how he died. The records on the official German website (Gedenkbuch for victims of National Socialism) show that he was interned in 1940 in Saint Cyprien camp, and deported to Auschwitz from Drancy camp on 17 August 1942. A document in Albert’s family, compiled by a local historian of Busenberg, records that he was first interned in Gurs camp in the Pyrenees, then in ‘St. Cyre’, and that he was shot trying to escape to Spain in 1943. In Busenberg, outside the house of my

, therefore, the state prosecutor as well as Papon’s defence team were permitted to call upon a number of leading historians to describe the circumstances surrounding the events in question. This was a historic trial in more ways than one. A second feature of the trial arose out of the nature of the charges. Papon, an official of the wartime Vichy regime, was charged with crimes against humanity for ordering the arrest and detention of nearly 1,600 Jews in Bordeaux where he was posted and their transfer to the transit camp at Drancy, north of Paris, from where they were

Again, in cantonal by-elections during 2001, the official right-wing parties actually lost 15 out of the 56 seats at stake to ‘various right’ candidates. In other words, even in a year when the right as a whole was regaining public confidence, the parties of the right remained unpopular. Similarly, the right’s provincial gains at the municipal elections of 2001, in Roanne, Toulon, Chartres or Tarbes, Rouen, La Seyne, Drancy or Blois, were primarily achieved by
