Abstract:

A biography of his grandparents, Matès and Idesa Jablonka. Pp. 215-369 deal with the Holocaust period. Matès and Idesa immigrated to Paris illegally from Poland in 1937, hoping to be received as political refugees, but they did not succeed. In 1939 and 1940 two children were born (one of them being the author's father). In August 1941 Matès went into hiding, while Idesa remained in their apartment. She avoided arrest in the Vel d'Hiv roundup, but was caught a year later, in summer 1943, together with her husband. The couple was deported to Auschwitz. Their children were cared for by friends and later sent to Bretagne. The details of what happened to Matès and Idesa in Auschwitz are not known; Matès apparently spent some time at slave labor, but he and his wife were both killed. Their children survived.
