Macron admits French responsibility for role in Holocaust

Macron admits French responsibility for role in Holocaust

According to the newspaper, the prime minister told this to French President Emmanuel Macron at their meeting in Paris earlier in the day.

Holocaust survivors recounted wrenching stories at the ceremony at the Vel d'Hiv stadium outside Paris, where French police rounded up some 13,000 people on July 16-17, 1942, before they were sent on to camps.

Like several of his predecessors, he accepts France's responsibility for the deportations, admitting that the Vichy regime actively organized them. At the end of the ceremony, Macron and Netanyahu went to the presidential palace in Paris to talk about Syria and Iran as well as the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Macron condemned an attack last week that killed two Israeli police officers at a Jerusalem shrine revered by Jews and Muslims.

But after they attended the Holocaust commemoration, Mr Macron also appealed for renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Upon his arrival, Netanyahu was met with fierce protests from demonstrators and various groups from the Union of French Jews for Peace (UJFP) to France's Community Party who contested his invite to the ceremony saying, the Israeli premier was not bringing a message of peace.

The Vel d'Hiv roundup was carried out under orders from the Nazis by the authorities of the Vichy collaborationist government, which controlled part of France following the country's occupation by Nazi Germany.

It remains unclear, however, whether Macron will follow the more interventionist approach taken by his predecessor Francois Hollande, whose efforts to mobilize the worldwide community on the question infuriated Israel.

That Netanyahu felt the need to go public with his displeasure points to this being a particular sore spot, and Israeli officials say he also brought the matter up to both US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Macron said on Sunday that France was ready to apply diplomatic levers toward renewed negotiations, but gave no specifics.

The two leaders will meet later today in order to discuss several topics. The Middle East peace process is likely to be high on the agenda.
