Vel d’Hiv, the Velodrome d’Hiver or Winter Stadium, was a velodrome close to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It became infamous 75 years ago in 1942 when, on July 16 and 17, over 13,000 Jews were arrested by French police acting on orders from the Nazi occupiers. The majority of those arrested were held captive at the velodrome before being sent to Auschwitz.

Of over 13,000 people detained, many held at the Vel d’Hiv, only 400 survived.
