Monaco issues report on WWII period

A report into the actions the Principality of Monaco during WWII has found that 76 Jews were arrested and deported from the country in 1942 and 1944.

However, the report, published on Thursday, also found that the country in general did not cooperate with anti-Jewish measures either from the collaborationist Vichy government in France or from the Nazi occupiers.

Serge Klarsfeld, the well-known French Shoah historian who has documented Jews deported from France to the Nazi camps, has now included detailed statistics from the situation as it pertains to Jews during the same period in the principality.

The report was commissioned by Monaco’s ruler, Prince Albert.
