    Keep my son close to you. Correspondence for a child in hiding, 1940-1944 - Alain-André Bernstein

    Éditions Le Manuscrit / Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah - 2008

    Born of Jewish parents in March 1940, Alain-André Bernstein was hidden with a Catholic family in the Loire Valley, just ten days after his birth. Thanks to the correspondence kept by his mother and rediscovered when she died, he was able to reconstitute the story of his earliest childhood.

    The letters of his foster family express the love and all the attention given to the child just awakening to life, in a world where he was risking death by the mere fact of being born a Jew. You can read there the humanity and compassion of the Breton family who saw in the Bernsteins only a family unjustly hunted down to whom help had to be given.

    Charlotte and Léon Breton have been recognized as "Righteous among the Nations" in 2004, thanks to the efforts of Alain-André who in return expresses to them with this book all the love that had been given him in all simplicity.
