La Rafle shows the planning and consequences of the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup in Paris during World War II. A product of Vichy-Nazi collaboration, the roundup removed 13,000 Jews from the capital to Auschwitz, an act of genocide the French government did not recognize until the 1990s. The film pays close attention to the disruption of childhood and home life through Jo, who escapes the fate of his family and friends.
