Synopsis

ABOUT THE BOOK Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay tells two simultaneous narratives. One story tells the experiences of Sarah, a young Jewish-French girl living in Paris with her family during World War II. The parallel story revolves around the character of Julia Jarmond, an American journalist living in Paris with her husband and her daughter, Zoe. As much as the book focuses on the parallel narratives of Sarah and Julia, Sarah's Key also contains an overarching story of France. These three foci fatefully intersect during an event known as the Roundup of the Vel' d' Hiv' on July 16, 1942, when French policemen and civil servants rounded up nearly 10,000 Jewish people. These people were sent first to internment camps in France, and then later on to their deaths at the infamous concentration camp, Auschwitz.
