1/20/2014 5:55 PM camp, Rachel and Berl? From great suffering, he died 2 days later. Later, Lipeh, Rachel's husband, was sent away separately. Further, their youngest daughter, Dora, had gotten married in the month of May, 1942, and with her husband, left for the other half of France which had not yet been occupied by the Germans. At that time, as you are so familiar with France, France was divided in two. That is, there was Free France, and there was occupied France. This lasted until the beginning of 1943 when the Allies invaded Algeria. Then, all of France was occupied by the Germans. As a result, the youngest daughter remained there. I must also tell you that there were a few Jews still in Paris, but French ones. They were not arrested as much. That's why, I am telling you it must have been because of a betrayal that they arrested Lipeh, and rachel and Berl (Bert?) in spite of their being French.
