Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in Germany in 1920. His parents sent him to study in Italy in 1934, due to the Nazi rise to power. In 1938, Barasch went to Zurich to study, but was expelled because there were "too many foreigners" in Switzerland. He then went to France. When the war broke out, Barasch was imprisoned in various detention camps but eventually managed to escape. In 1941 he crossed the Pyrenées to Spain, where he was also arrested and imprisoned. Barasch spent two years in the camp Miranda de Ebro; in 1943 he was released through the intervention of a representative of the IRC. After the war he emigrated to the USA, where his mother and sister lived through the war years; his father perished in Sachsenhausen.
