Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in Debrecen, Hungary in 1915. He immigrated to France in 1937, but returned to Debrecen in 1938 in response to a call-up notice for military service. He got a medical discharge and returned to France. Citrome then volunteered to serve in the French army; there, too, he got a medical discharge in April 1940. In August 1941 he was taken with other members of his family to Drancy, and later to Compiègne. Describes his life in these camps. In 1942, by a fluke, he and other Hungarian Jews in the camp were freed because they were Hungarian citizens (Hungary being an ally of Germany). He then volunteered, on false papers, for labor in Germany and was accepted for bakery work in Frankfurt. In spring 1944 he returned to France. He married after the war, and in 1951 immigrated to Canada.
