This month's selection was Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. The author has a website where you can find links to a few promotional interviews. She also has a separate blog for the book. And she posts to a Facebook page. In addition, she promotes the book and tells you what she's having for breakfast on Twitter. I share this, not so much because any of it is worth browsing, but because it might help explain why a book that received no serious reviews or interviews is an international bestseller. Here is a little promotional video I found on YouTube that gives you a little sample of the author in person:
Of course, the subject of the Vel d'Hiv Round-up is well worth exploring. The Wikipedia article is quite thorough and I recommend visiting the Paris and Drancy pages of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum site. which include photographs and personal histories of Holocaust victims and survivors. And be sure to check out my previous post on films about the Vel d'Hiv.
