1942. Joseph is eleven years old. One morning in June, he is forced to go to school wearing a yellow star sewn onto his jacket. Some people show kindness, others contempt. Jo, his friends, Jewish just like him, and their families learn to live in occupied Paris in the Butte Montmartre, where they've taken refuge. Or so they had thought, until 16 July, 1942, when their fragile happiness is shattered. From the Vélodrome D’Hiver, where 13,000 people were rounded up and cramped together, to the Beaune-La-Rolande camp, from Vichy to the Berghof terrace, The Roundup reveals the real fate of the victims. All the characters in the film existed in real life. All the events, even the
most extreme, took place in the summer of 1942.
