I believe in the morning - Charles Palant
Charles Palant was born in Paris in 1922 in the working-class district of Belleville, home of many Jewish immigrant families like his own. Early in life, he gave voice to his convictions and his commitment to the service of others.
Trade union representative in 1936, member of the International League against Anti-Semitism, he participated after the war in founding MRAP (Movement against Racism, Anti-Semitism and for the Peace), subsequently become secretary general.
At Lyon in August 1943, Charles Palant was arrested by the Gestapo together with his mother and sister. Interned at Fort Montluc, they were deported in October to Auschwitz. He alone survived, after experiencing the “death march” and the liberation of Buchenwald. Even in the midst of the most terrible trials of captivity, he maintained his unwavering faith in humanity.
