Clara wrote this letter from the Vél d'Hiv on July 18, 1942.

        Paris, July 18th, 1942
Dear Uncle, Aunt and Cousins,
Just two words to tell you that we were arrested on Thursday at 3:30 and brought to the Velodrome d'Hiver.
We are very wretched. People fall sick every minute; there are pregnant women, blind people... we all sleep on the ground…
          Clara         Henri
