In April 2017, Presidential Candidate Marine Le Pen said that the French government was not responsible for the arrest and deportation of Jews during World War II. In July 1942 German soldiers along with the French police rounded up 13,000 Jews and put them into the Velodrome d'Hiver cycling stadium, commonly known as the Vel d'Hiv. They were then sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp where they were executed by the Nazis. Le Pen stated that since members of the French government were in exile in London at the time they were powerless to stop the Nazis. Le Pen’s statement contradicts the French government's shared responsibility for the deportations. In 1995 Jacques Chirac became the first French President to state that the French government shared responsibility for the deaths of 76,000 French Jews who were deported during WWII.  See recent WWII news
