French President Emmanuel Macron and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu give a press conference in Paris after honouring the victims of a mass deportation of French Jews that took place over two days in July in 1942.

Macron welcomed Netanyahu to Paris to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Vélodrome d'Hiver roundup of Jews during World War II. French police arrested an estimated 13,000 Jews in Paris on July 16-17, 1942, including thousands of children. They were detained for four days in horrible conditions in the Vélodrome d'Hiver, a stadium originally built for cycling races, before being deported to Auschwitz. Fewer than a hundred of those arrested in the raid would survive the Holocaust.
