I was ten years old and still in an orphanage when the war ended. One of the other little girls in the orphanage had a sister who happened to know where my sister Esther was living. That is how Esther found me. She took me to live with my brother Charles in Brussels. Of the eleven brothers and sisters, eight of us survived. Jean, who had been a member of the Resistance
, was killed by the Germans during the war. Simon died three weeks after liberation in Auschwitz.
