80 Years Ago—Aug. 26, 1941: Nazis round up 23,600 Hungarian and Ukrainian Jews in Kamenets-Podolsk, Ukraine; over the next few days they will become victims of the first large-scale Nazi massacre.

Former (and future) Vichy French prime minister Pierre Laval is shot and wounded near Versailles by Paul Collette, a résistant acting alone; Collette is arrested but survives the war.
