Abstract

This documentary highlights Jewish resistance during the Holocaust in Vichy France during World War II. Interviewees  - "the terrorists" - were Jewish immigrants and communists who survived the widespread removal of their communities. Throughout Paris, they used guerilla warfare tactics to bomb and kill Nazi targets. Their commentaries shed light on the role of immigrants and the left in shaping the French Resistance.
