On the frontiers of hope - Georges Loinger with Katy Hazan
From his adolescence in Alsace, Georges Loinger was made aware of the danger represented by the Nazi plans for the Jews. He dedicated himself to physical education for the young to prepare them for the challenges ahead.
As a prisoner of war, he escaped in 1941 from his German Stalag to be reunited with his wife at La Bourboule. Then he threw himself wholeheartedly into the Resistance inside the Burgundy network and, with the OSE, participated in saving Jewish children. He saved more than 350 Jewish children by getting them to pass into Switzerland from Annemasse.
After the war, he pursued his Zionist ideals and took part in the adventure of the Exodus. Tireless militant, he devotes all his energy now into giving Jewish Resistance its proper place in history. This book is the fruit of his conversations with historian Katy Hazan.
