In this edition on Holocaust Memorial Day, we discover a little-known chapter of French history. In 1943, the Germans had occupied the southern French port city of Marseille. With its working class, immigrant and Jewish neighbourhoods around the Old Port, the city had come to represent everything that Hitler and the Nazis hated. The Germans, who saw the Old Port neighbourhoods as a hotbed of the French Resistance, decided to make an example of Marseille. They rounded up thousands of people, including hundreds of Jews who were later sent to a concentration camp, and destroyed an entire district.Between January 22 and 24, 1943, some 6,000 Marseille residents were arrested. More than 1,500 were later deported, including almost 800 Jews who were sent to the Sobibor extermination camp in Nazi-occupied Poland. From February 1, 1943, a whole neighbourhood near the Old Port was razed to the ground. Hundreds of homes were destroyed and 50 streets wiped from the map.FRANCE 24's Florence Gaillard and Georges Yazbek met with survivors and descendants of victims of the Marseille roundup, who shared their harrowing accounts. Among them is Pascal Luongo, a lawyer who filed a criminal complaint in 2019 for crimes against humanity.English translation: Monte Francis Read more on FRANCE 24 EnglishRead also:Police resistance during WWII: How French officers saved hundreds of Jews in NancyPikovsky family behind Holocaust documentary honoured at French ceremonyVichy France’s ‘biggest stain’?

A researcher on Mustang Island, Texas, showed off a huge American eel he found washed ashore in video from Tuesday, January 17.Jace Tunnell, a reserve director at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute, shared a video on YouTube of him enthusiastically presenting a female American eel, which he said was around four foot long.“This is basically as big as they get,” Tunnell said. “This is likely a female, they’re larger than the males.”Tunnell added that large females can have up to four million eggs.The American eel is listed as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.Tunnell explained that this was in part due to the negative impact of dam building on the eel’s life cycle over the past century. “Whenever all the dams and stuff started coming in, the life cycle of these fish, of going up the rivers, coming down the rivers, and going way out in to the ocean to be able to have their eggs […] with those dams on the rivers, really, they weren’t able to do the things they would normally do.”The Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve, which Tunnell manages, conducts research and education into preserving healthy Texas coastlines.
