iRead Book Club: Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Oct 10, 2016 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm

The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance's iRead Book Club is open to museum members and volunteers. Become a member today! Paris, July 1942. Sarah, a ten-year-old girl, is brutally arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours. Paris, May 2002. On Vel' d'Hiv's 60th anniversary, journalist Julia Jarmond is asked to write an article about this dark day in France's past. Through her contemporary investigation, she stumbles onto a trail of long-hidden family secrets that connect her to Sarah. Julia finds herself compelled to retrace the girl's ordeal, from that terrible term in the Vel d'Hiv, to the camps, and beyond. As she probes into Sarah's past, she begins to question her own place in France and to reevaluate her marriage and her life.
