    Alone in the world - Charles Mitzer

    Éditions Le Manuscrit / Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah - 2010

    Charles Mitzer was a young soldier at the time of the French defeat in 1940. Returning to civilian life, he worked in Grenoble as a radio-electrician and put his skills at the disposition of the Resistance.

    After the German invasion of the Occupation zone administered by the Italians, he was arrested in February 1944 when he was on his way to join the underground and bring his woman companion to safety. Charles and his young brother were deported in Convoy N°69. At Birkenau, he witnessed the mass murder of Hungarian Jews. At this time, the Nazis’ death factory was working at full speed. Charles Mitzner managed to survive this hell and the "death marches", a four-month odyssey of horror which brought him to four other German camps before being liberated.
