Abstract:

Memoirs of the writer and historian, born in 1930 in Paris as the eldest son of an assimilated Jewish family. The first four chapters are based on correspondence between his parents, on his father's diary (written between September 1942-February 1944), and on the diary of his sister Aline (begun on 15 May 1944, the date of arrest of the parents); they relate the family's experiences during World War II. Vacationing in Bretagne at the outbreak of the war, the family decided not to return to Paris. His father was at first mobilized by the French army; in June 1940 his mother and the four children fled to Marseille, where his father later joined them. They remained in that area throughout the war. His parents were arrested in May 1944 and sent to Drancy; they were later deported to Auschwitz where they were murdered. Pierre, his brother and sister (the other brother died in infancy) lived with their grandmother, their aunt, and other members of the family in Dieulefit during the summer of 1944, and in October the family returned to Paris.
