Abstract:

Memoirs of a Parisian Jew (b. 1933) on her experiences in the Holocaust. Her parents, Bella and Samuel, from Łódź and recently naturalized, tried to escape with their two daughters when the war broke out, but returned to Paris in 1940. In June 1942, Bella refused to declare their Jewish identities; Evelyne was sent to a home for malnourished French children in Mont-Saint-Aignon until May 1943. Fearing that the deportation of French Jewry was imminent, Samuel fled to Toulouse and later hid in Lyon until the Liberation. Bella sought refuge with his brother, Edouard, who was hidden by his Catholic wife; when she left them, she lived in the region as a Christian, and Evelyne's little sister was taken care of by various families. In June 1943, Evelyne returned to Paris, where she was reunited with her mother and shared her clandestine life near Versailles until 1944, when they returned to Paris and were reunited with Samuel. Only then were they informed that all their family in Poland had perished, except for one cousin, who had joined the Polish regiments stationed in Scotland.
