Abstract: The German forces occupying Paris arrested Emile Borel and three othermembers of the Acad\-emie des Sciences in October 1941 and released them aboutfive weeks later. Why? We examine some relevant German and French archives andother sources and propose some hypotheses. In the process, we review how theOccupation was structured and how it dealt with French higher education andsome French mathematicians.
