This chapter examines the rescue of Jews in Paris between 1940 and 1944 by focusing on roundups and social networks, with particular reference to individual behavior and decisions made by the city's population in the face of dangers hanging over the Jews during the German occupation of the capital. It considers two forms of danger faced by the Jews, objective danger and subjective danger, the latter of which was manifested during the roundups. It argues that that the nature of encounters between Jews and non-Jews mainly had to do with relationships formed at various levels prior to World War II. The chapter also analyses whether the local population's reactions depend on the brutality of the arrests, and concludes by asking whether such reactions influenced the type of rescue carried out at the time.

Keywords:   rescue, Jews, Paris, roundups, social networks, objective danger, subjective danger, non-Jews, World War II, arrests
