Abstract:

Memoirs of Sullaper, a Jew born in Sosnowiec in 1921, who was active in the French resistance and instrumental in helping hundreds of Jewish children escape across the Swiss border. The Szulklapers (as they were then called) settled in Paris in 1930 with four children; one daughter remained in Poland, where she and her family were killed by the Germans in 1939. An ardent Zionist, Vigtor spent three years in Palestine, returning to France in 1939. He joined the French Polish army, escaped from an internment camp in Switzerland, returned to France, was interned in Pithiviers, and escaped from there as well. He helped his family hide in Lyon and joined the resistance in 1943. He forged identity papers and worked for the UGIF to save Jewish children. His family was deported to Auschwitz in August 1944 with the last train from Lyon. The parents, a brother and a sister survived. After the war Vigtor (Victor) returned to Paris.
