Re: Looking for “enfants cachés” (hidden children) in the South of France #france #holocaust


My father's three first cousins were sent from Frankfurt to France in 1939; their parents and baby brother stayed behind and were later killed. The three spent time in Munster, Bergerac, and Oeuvre de Secours aux Enfants (OSE) children's home, Chateau Montintin. The testimony of the oldest, Mini Chazen, is on file with the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. Mini is no longer alive, but I believe her younger siblings are. They left France via Marseilles in 1942 just as the deportations were beginning, and were brought to the U.S. and adopted together.
