Lutetia: A luxury hotel in Paris meets the Holocaust

with Professor Michael Marrus
Wednesday, November 14, 2018, 7:30 PM

In honour of Holocaust Education week, Professor Marrus will share with us the story of the Lutetia Hotel.

The Lutetia was requisitioned by the Germans and housed the Abwehr, the Germans’ secret intelligence service.   Then, in 1944, the Lutetia was requisitioned once more, by the French Resistance, and it became the reception point for the return of tens of thousands of surviving deportees, including Jews, who came back to France after their ordeal in German camps.
