France's President Francois Hollande bows in front of a plaque on July 22, 2012 in Paris, during a ceremony to commemorate the seventeenth anniversary of the Vel D'Hiv roundup (Rafle du Vélodrome d'Hiver). On July 16 and 17, 1942, some 13,000 Jews, mostly of non-French origin, were detained and taken to the Velodrome d'Hiver cycling stadium near the Eiffel Tower, where they spent a week in appalling conditions, before being deported to Nazi concentration camps.
