Résumé

As a sociologist of Memory at the Institute of Social Sciences and Politics, Sarah Gensburger tells the forgotten story of the labour camps inside Paris, which were outbuildings of Drancy's major concentration camp. During the so-called Operation Furniture, a vast spoliation endeavour set up by the Nazis, three Parisian buildings were seized between 1943 and 1944. During this period, Drancy detainees were transferred there to sort, clean and repair 38,000 belongings plundered in Jewish apartments in Paris. The researcher delves into the painstaking research needed to bring this story back to active memory recall.
