Canadian Immigration Overview
III. Rediscovering Freedom
I remember a journalist from Paris who visited us and then wrote an article titled "J'Accuse," accusing the world of indifference towards the 430 youngsters who had returned from hell and yet were still in a concentration camp. As a result of public pressure, the government of France agreed to admit the children of Buchenwald, even offering us French citizenship. And so we left for Ecouis, a town in northern France. I can still remember the relief of leaving Germany, as we crossed the border into France.
