Abstract:

Reconstructs the events of a raid on the 20th convoy which was carrying Jews from the Mechelen internment camp in Belgium to Auschwitz, carried out by a group of three Jewish resistance fighters, headed by Youra Livchitz, on 20 January 1943. On this date, 1,631 Jews were to be deported, among them 262 children. Three passengers escaped from the train when it slackened its speed while traversing the station of Muizen in the Flemish region. Livchitz and his friends then stopped the train, opened the first wagon, and ordered the passengers to flee. The surprised guards assumed that they were confronted with superior power and did not react immediately. 17 passengers managed to escape. Describes the flight of Simon Gronowski, Claire and Philippe Szyper-Prowizur, and Régine Krochmal. Livchitz was denounced, arrested, and executed. One of his accomplices, Jean Franklemon, was deported to Oranienburg and Sachsenhausen, and survived a death march. The other accomplice, Robert Maistriau, escaped arrest, but was later deported to Buchenwald and liberated in Bergen-Belsen.
