    I see it again. A Polish Jewish child in the torment - Henri Rozen-Rechelsnazie

    Éditions Le Manuscrit / Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah - 2012

    Henri, born in Demblin in 1933, witnessed the Nazi invasion, the persecutions, the first deportation of the Jews of his town which included his sister and brother, the Warsaw Ghetto, then the disappearance of his father and the second deportation which he narrowly escaped. But he did not escape the Demblin labour camp, that of Czestochowa to which he was deported with his grandfather, and the concentration camp at Buchenwald. He finally experienced the liberation of the ghetto-camp of Terezín (Theresienstadt) after a journey of three weeks which his grandfather did not survive.

    After the war, Henri, recovered from typhus, was reunited with his mother with home he managed to leave Communist Poland for Paris. It was only 50 years later that he would tell the story of "his war" handwritten on a school exercise-book. Deeply moving.
