    • Synopsis
    • 1942.
      Joseph is 11 years old.
      On this June morning, he must go to school with a yellow star stitched to his chest. He is greeted with sympathy from a local antique merchant. And taunts from the baker's wife.
      Amidst kindliness or contempt, Jo, his Jewish friends and their families make a fresh start to their lives in occupied Paris, on the hill in Montmartre where they have found refuge.
      Or so they believe, until dawn on July 16, 1942, when their fragile happiness is shattered...
      From the Winter Velodrome, crammed full of 13,000 rounded-up Jews, to the camp at Beaune la Rolande, from Vichy to the terrace of Hitler's Berghof, The Round-Up charts the real-life destiny of the victims and their persecutors.
      Those who orchestrated it.
      Those whose trust was tragically misplaced.
      Those who fled.
      Those who resisted.
      All the characters in this film are real.
      All the events, even the most extreme, really took place in that summer of 1942.
