Signature of an agreement between the Association of the families and friends of the deportees of Convoy 77, and the Paris Police Prefecture

On Monday, March 12, the President of the Convoy 77 Association and the Prefect of the Paris Police signed an agreement warranting very broad and professional access to the Archives of the Paris Police Prefecture, in order to facilitate its action and round out the documentation needed to draw up the biographies of the deportees. This agreement authorizes the association to formally acknowledge these documents on their internet site and in any other eventual publications (in compliance with the rules governing the reproduction of archives).

 

The signature ceremony took place in the offices of the Prefect of Paris Police, in the presence of numerous prefects and top echelon civil servants, whose presence conferred a symbolically important solemnity on the act. In his speech, some recorded extracts of which are reproduced below, Mr Michel Delpuech, the Prefect of the Paris Police, emphasized this importance.
