About this title


The destruction of the French Jews under the German Occupation is seen by two witnesses, one a member of the Rothschild family, the other a member of the Resistance

From Library Journal:

Josephs has written "an accessible personalized account of the events and decrees initiated in Paris" against French Jews during World War II. He tells the stories of Armand Kohn, a prosperous French banker and businessman whose aunt married a Rothschild, and Paulette Szlifke, a teenage fighter in the Jewish Resistance, who survived Auschwitz. These two define the range of Jewish experience in Occupied France. Kohn, thoroughly assimilated, a decorated French veteran of World War I, refused to believe he and his family were in danger until they were finally separated at Buchenwald. Szlifke welcomed the chance for open rebellion against the Nazis, while fearing their retaliation against her Polish immigrant parents. Their stories are made more poignant by the knowledge that Alois Brunner, who was responsible for deporting thousands of French Jews, is alive and unrepentant in Syria. Highly recommended reading.
