In 2012, on the 70th anniversary of the rounding up, the then French President, François Hollande, gave a speech at the site of the demolished velodrome which illustrates the working of rhetorics of penitence (the first paragraph is from the beginning, the second from the middle and the third from the final section of the speech). We’ve gathered this morning to remember the horror of a crime, express the sorrow of those who experienced the tragedy, and speak of the dark hours of collaboration, our history, and therefore France’s responsibility.
